Bringing trust and respect to the Internet
Imagine a digital world where there are no hackers, no privacy concerns, and you connect with people and businesses you know and trust.
A safer world where your conversations are private and your data is secure.
A transparent world where you choose who can see your data and how they use it.
A world where trust and honesty are rewarded, not exploited.
A seamless world where your identity and data follow you from app-to-app and device-to-device because they belong to you. Forever.
There’s some scary stuff going on when you surf the Web.
You’re not as safe as you think…
Hackers Make a Living Off Your Data
Why hack into centralized databases? Because that’s where the data is, $16 billion worth was stolen last year.
World Famous Hacks:
Heartbleed: A flaw that allows hackers to impersonate a website you’ve shared your information with. They see your username, password & evesdrop on your communications.
Shellshock: Millions of enterprise databases are cracked and countless consumer records are at risk by hackers exploiting security defects.
Stagefright: Attackers use malware video clips to infect your android phone, even if you didn’t open the file.
In the Respect Network, there are no central data stores. Your data is encrypted in individual personal clouds that only you have keys to unlock.
Our security architecture makes the Respect Network much less appealing to those who want to steal data. It’s simply not worth it to criminals to try to break into individual personal clouds.
Facebook knows you better than your spouse does.
When compared to answers by people who know you;
- With 10 likes Facebook knows you better than a colleague
- With 150 likes Facebook knows you better than a family member
- With 300 likes Facebook knows you better than your spouse
Google knows you better than you know yourself.
- 1 in 7 people living on the planet visited a Google online property last month
- 9 in10 websites you visit are tracked by Google
- Google has bought over 125 companies to observe and manage everything from the devices you use to the content you see
Even free information isn’t free. Every commercial website uses advertising to fund its operation. Behind the ads you see, there is an invisible economic engine powering our web pages with their cookies and pixel trackers, tracking codes and databases.
The Respect Network is not one of the intrusive, surveillance-based advertising networks that dominate the Web today. All of the data generated within the network is bound by the Respect Trust Framework and is controlled by you, the member. No one can use those assets without your express permission so the ability to buy, sell, or trade your data is limited by design. Bottom line, you are never the product in the Respect Network.
Somebody’s Watching You
The $200 billion data broker industry collects personal data from countless sources. They piece your data together into a shockingly complete and accurate picture of your digital self and sell it on the open market.
This can’t happen in
the Respect Network
All of the data generated within the network is bound by the Respect Trust Framework and is owned by the member. No one can use those assets without express permission.
Take Control of Your Private Information
Our privacy rules are simple; if you wouldn’t do it in the real world, you can’t do it in the Respect Network:
- You own and control all of the data you collect and share in the Respect Network. Think of it as your digital self.
- The Respect Network Corporation will not abuse your digital self for its own gain.
- Your digital self cannot be held hostage by the Respect Network Corporation or any of its members. It’s yours to take with you.
- Treat others’ digital selves as you would like them to treat yours.
