Claim of US Patent No. 10,462,831

1. A system comprising:a server device comprising a processing device and a non-transitory computer-readable medium that is configured for storing:
a first user private profile that is associated with a first user ID and that stores personally identifiable information of a first user;
a first user public profile that stores data describing a physical attribute of at least one of the first user or a physical object associated with the first user;
a second user private profile that is associated with a second user ID and that stores personally identifiable information of a second user;
a second user public profile that stores data describing a physical attribute of at least one of the second user or a physical object associated with the second user; and
a communication link management engine that is executable by the processing device to:
receive a request for a code from a first user device that is controllable by the first user and that is configured for electronically communicating via a network, the request identifying or being associated with the first user ID;
provide the first user device with access to the code and associate the code with the first user private profile;
receive the code from a second user device that received the code in a channel other than through the server device from the first user, the code being received by the server device with the second user ID or associated with the second user ID; and
in response to receiving the code from the second user device, associate the code to the second user private profile, establish a communication link between the first user device and the second user device to allow the first user device to communicate electronically with the second user device for a predetermined finite period of time,
apply permissions to the communication link that:
permit the second user device to access, from the first user public profile and during the predetermined finite period of time, the physical attribute of the at least one of the first user or the physical object associated with the first user,
prohibit the second user device from accessing, from the first user private profile, the personally identifiable information of the first user that is stored in the first user private profile,
permit the first user device to access, from the second user public profile and during the predetermined finite period of time, the physical attribute of the at least one of the second user or the physical object associated with the second user, and
prohibit the first user device from accessing, from the second user private profile, the personally identifiable information of the second user that is stored in the second user private profile.
