WHERE YOUR ONLINE BEHAVIOR IS YOUR BUSINESS ONLY, PERIOD
In a direct response to the misdeed of leading social networks PONSIST is built on a new business model.
It is unsponsored, doesn’t deal with third parties and will never commercialise your content or your personal details.
We are becoming increasingly aware of the fact you tend to pay a high price for 'free' networks. It’s not a monetary cost, but when your online behaviour is turned into marketing and even political profiles that are sold to the highest bidder it becomes a slippery slope that isn't in your benefit. Data mining is the new gold.
Besides the well known digital giants there are other available medical platforms that can seem interesting to join for free. Such platforms are often sponsored by commercial parties hoping to gain an advantage on their competition through it, leaving the content or thought direction somewhat influenced if not plain biased.
PONSIST finds its income source solely from internal channels with PONSIST Store. PONSIST Store is an online store selling amazing apparel designed for Healthcare Professionals. This business model eliminates any need to find outside fundings as all the revenue of PONSIST store goes straight into PONSIST.
Equally important PONSIST does not track your behaviour, it does not influence posted content and it doesn’t mine your data. With fundings from within there’s no need to go there. In fact, we don’t want to go there, ever.
This business model sprung from personal frustration of seeing how people are being mislead and how companies abuse our trust as well as our details for their own financial gain. There’s a popular Dutch proverb ‘Verbeter de wereld, begin bij jezelf’ which roughly translate into ‘If you want to improve the world, start with yourself’ and that’s exactly what PONSIST does.
Think of PONSIST as a self supporting environment similar to a biotope. You can read the full details in our Our Agreement.
