An Ethical Business Model for Personal Data
“When a service is free, you are the product”. While the Respect Network is free for individuals, you are not the product—you are the partner. Your lifetime personal cloud—from the provider of your choice—is paid for by the businesses who value your relationship.
The Same Proven Model as a Credit Card Network
With credit card networks, people and businesses are represented by a bank who belongs to the network. The network and the banks are paid out of interchange fees charged to businesses based on the value of the transactions they do over the network.
The Value is in the Relationships
Privacy by Design
All relationships on the Respect Network are peer-to-peer. Each relationship is its own private, secure cloud-to-cloud connection called a personal channel. Only the parties to that relationship have access to the data or messages shared on that channel. There is no central middleman with access to everything.
