A personal cloud is a safe place to store your personal data. You can access it from any device and you always have complete ownership and control. A personal cloud is also a safe place to share your data through connections you (and only you) can make with other people and businesses on the network.
The data you store in your Emmett Global personal cloud is 100% private. Only you can decide who to share it with, whether it's a photo of your child or a copy of your tax return. Your personal cloud can also be encrypted so that only you or people you share it with can view it, and we're working to make the security ever stronger as the Respect Network grows.
To utilize the benefits of a Personal Cloud you must have a cloud name. A cloud name is a simple human-friendly address for your Personal Cloud. Just as telephones need phone numbers and email accounts need email addresses, your Personal Cloud needs an address for sending and receiving messages and sharing data. A sample address is "=John."
We're all beginning to realize just how important our identities, our privacy, and our choices are online - and how undervalued they are. With your personal cloud you are helping launch the first global network of apps and services that all respect your privacy. Your online information is precious. Until now, the growth of the Internet has been about large companies providing free services in exchange for using your online information. Shouldn't it be you who decides who can see you - and all the details of your life?
We think so.
