XDI.ORG EGS Program Terms of Service

1. Terms of Service for Global Personal I-Name Registrants

This document states, in plain English, the terms under which XDI.ORG global registry services are offered to you. XDI.ORG requires that a global registrar (called an i-broker) incorporate this document into their registration agreement for a global personal i-name. The i-broker may also specify additional terms of service provided they do not conflict with those in this document.

1.1. The Service

XDI.ORG global registry services offer you the ability to register your own universal private address called an i-name. An i-name can be resolved into any other personal data of your choosing (e.g., your email address, your cell phone number, your preferred airline seating, etc.) At the same time it protects your privacy by allowing you to control who can access this data and for what purposes. A global i-name registered with XDI.ORG is also portable, meaning you can keep it for as long as you like even if you change your i-broker.

1.2. The Early Global Services (EGS) Program

The Early Global Services Program offered by Identity Commons in concert with 2idi, XDI.ORG and Cordance is an opportunity for a limited number of registrants to obtain a global personal i-name under very favorable terms. The basic deal is a one-time fee to register a global personal i-name for a period of 50 years. The costs of maintaining the i-name registration over this period will be absorbed by Identity Commons, XDI.ORG, Cordance, and their affiliates.

This program is offered in the spirit of a "barnraising" to help build common identity and trust infrastructure that benefits all of us. Beyond the costs of administration, the proceeds from the EGS program will be used to help develop the open source software and shared XRI/XDI infrastructure needed to provide services to i-name holders. This form of community-based financing helps assures that this infrastructure will be freely and openly available to all Internet users and not beholden to any commercial interest.
