An Ethical Business Model for Personal Data
“When a service is free, you are the product”. The Respect Network is not free because you are the partner. The entire network exists to help you protect and realize the value of your personal information and relationships.
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.
