OPEN EXCHANGE is a community of professionals, some of whom have listed for as long as 25 years or more. OPEN EXCHANGE stands for quality, integrity, and personal responsibility, and we encourage listers to adopt the following guidelines for professional conduct. While we cannot guarantee performance, we will not knowingly continue to accept listings from people who violate our Code of Ethics.
OPEN EXCHANGE is also a marketplace of ideas, and in this marketplace you may read something that you don't agree with. We request that you show tolerance and honor other people's rights of free speech and free assemblywhich ultimately protect your rights, too. Please call us with your comments and feedback.
