INTRODUCTION Internet is a global communication tool that allows companies to show to the society many aspects of themselves. During the last years it’s increasing the use of the website to inform the society about the corporate culture, and the values that it is composed. It could be supposed that the values declared in the corporate website is a truthful information that companies show to the society, but it’s needed to question if it’s really to inform the main objective, or it’s hidden other strategic intentions of marketing related to build a positive feeling to the consumer about its corporate branding. It’s possible that the strategy of the enterprises is to make consumers feel an alignment with the values desired by the society with the values published in their website, about their supposed corporate values of their culture.
