Please note that safeSpace is in live Beta testing until the end of 2018. We are happy to offer you a 50% discount until then.
5-1) How can you create an account, pay for it and then receive access details without leaving a record of your identity? That took a bit of thinking! The solution was to separate the technical and the financial sides of the process, and to do this in such a way that no link could be established between the two afterwards.
5-2) First, you fill out a form. This asks a minimum of information. Part of this is sent to Email4Life Ltd, our sister organisation from the New Unionism Network. The rest goes to safeSpace, who set up a safeSpace email address for the account holder.
5-3) Our colleagues at Email4Life invoice you. Once your payment is receipted against an order number, we send them your safeSpace account details (based on an order number). They relay this information to you. Then both of us permanently delete all trace of your order.
5-4) When you login to your safeSpace email account you will find a PIN number waiting for you. You need to keep this somewhere safe and accessible because from this moment on, that is all we know about you. We will need if you ask for support or reset your password. If you don't have this information, there's not much we can do to help.
5-5) When you join up we will also send you some guidelines on the next level of security and privacy protection. This includes a risk assessment process, which will help you make a few remaining choices.
5-6) Once you have a safeSpace meeting room, you can add others to it. It is completely up to those who use this room whether they identify themselves or not. Yes, you're now part of Anonymous!
Sotto voce: In the future everybody will be anonymous for fifteen minutes!
