By the way: Alice does trust I2C because they assure privacy PRIVACY ASSURED
I2C.com confirms to Schools4Africa: we know the stranger knocking at your door, what do you want to know about this person?
Schools4africa to i2c.com: that is great, we need only information about the profession and nationality and the right to contact Alice. Can you ask this on our behalf to Alice?
I2C.com to Alice: For getting access to Schools4Africa this site would like to know the following information: Profession = “ school director ” Nationality = “ Gambia ” and they would like also the right to contact you Alice is that ok with you? … just click OK
I2C.Com to Alice …and by the way we don’t provide any further information to schools4africa other than an unique, dedicated reference number only known to you and schools4africa an us…
Assume this number to be an unique number representing your relationship with schools4africa; by the way you don’t have to remember this number : i2c does this for you Your relation number at school4Africa.com is http://i2c.com/re6tgw787w9hdh78wggfew555hh6hhh333656
Alice thinks that’s cool fasttrack registration! I like those smart guys at Schools4Africa now already. Of course are they allowed to know my nationality and profession.
So Alice is ok with School4Africa’s requests and confirms with one-click Profession = Schoolteacher Nationality = Gambia Right to contact = yes OK Alice if you click ok, this information is sent to schools4africa.com
Schools4Africa receives just partial information and redirects Alice to the special area about school projects in Gambia
In future sessions between Schools4Africa and Alice, more information can be requested; But future personal transactions will all be logged by i2c.com
Schools4Africa does not have Alice’s email address but they have the right to contact…
… this means that schools4africa can only send messages via the identity provider: [email_address]
Alice can cancel the account at Schools4Africa and request to delete every data stored about her at Schools4Africa
It is a pity for Schools4Africa but they can easily fulfill this delete request, because every piece of data is stored under the relation number.
School4Africa can’t contact Alice anymore the relation number is canceled, but if would illegally an email, they would get caught by I2C.com and receive a warning or a fine. The message will not be forwarded to Alice.
