An electronic marketplace system that protects data transfers across disparate servers or networks can include communication devices that couple system users to a mesh network of public key identity servers and/or link contract servers that are interconnected. The public key identity servers collectively contain a global last-closed ledger of public encryption keys for system users, and verify users using the public keys by accessing local ledgers or asking other identity servers for the public keys. A link contract server provides a link contract regarding the allowed use of the transferred protected data, and provides for a data transfer between the parties after all have agreed thereto. The link contract can be in JSON format in an HTTP or HTTPS header. Users can submit requests to link contract servers, and requests can be searched by vendors prior to proposing a link contract.
