Principals of OVBE

We are building OVBE to share information pertinent to becoming an Entrepreneur, which we believe will empower people to take the next step. OVBE promotes networking and sharing by giving individuals greater power to share and connect. Certain principles guide OVBE in pursuing these goals. Achieving these principles may be constrained by limitations of law, technology, and evolving social norms. We therefore establish these Principles as the foundation of the rights and responsibilities of those within the OVBE club.

1. Freedom to Share and Connect

People should have the freedom to share whatever information they want, in any medium and any format, and have the right to connect online with anyone - any person, organization or network - as long as they both consent to the connection.

2. Ownership and Control of Information

People should own their information. They should have the freedom to share it with anyone they want and take it with them anywhere they want, including removing it from the OVBE network. People should have the freedom to decide with whom they will share their information, and to set privacy controls to protect those choices. Those controls, however, are not capable of limiting how those who have received information may use it, particularly outside the OVBE network.

3. Free Flow of Information

People should have the freedom to access all of the information made available to them by others. People should also have practical tools that make it easy, quick, and efficient to share and access this information.

4. Fundamental Equality

Every Person - whether individual, advertiser, developer, organization, or other entity - should have representation and access to distribution and information within the OVBE network, regardless of the Person's primary activity. There should be a single set of principles, rights, and responsibilities that should apply to all people using the OVBE network.

5. Social Value

People should have the freedom to build trust and reputation through their identity and connections, and should not have their presence on the OVBE network removed for reasons other than those described in OVBE's Terms of Service, Code of Conduct, or Membership Contract.

6. Common Welfare

The rights and responsibilities of OVBE and the people that use it are outlined in the Terms of Service, Membership Contract, and Code of Conduct, which align with these Principles.

7. Transparent Process

OVBE should publicly make available information about its purpose, plans, policies, and operations. OVBE should have a process of notice and comment to provide transparency and encourage input on amendments to these Principles or to the Rights and Responsibilities.

8. Global economy

The OVBE network should transcend geographic and national boundaries and be available to everyone in the world.
