ShareProCare charter

Dear ShareProCare members, you will find in this charter all the rules of good practice.

Each contributor agrees to respect them.

What is the ShareProCare community?

ShareProCare is an innovation network in the field of health and social care, which aims to strengthen relations between public institutions and innovative companies that develop innovative products and services for elderly and dependent people. The network contributes to building a balanced innovation ecosystem by bringing together the different actors around a common objective, that of generating a positive impact on the lives of older people.

What is a charter?

This document is a charter of good practice specifying the responsibility of users in accordance with the legislation in order to establish a proper use of the services of the digital platform, in compliance with the legal and regulatory provisions in force, with minimum rules of courtesy and respect for others.

This charter of use is intended for anyone who has access to the spaces of this collaborative platform. It describes the general conditions of use.

Technical and didactic support for this platform is provided by the ShareProCare team who can be contacted by e-mail at: contact@ShareProCare.eu.

Throughout the charter you will find the following designations:

  • User: the person (professional or user) having access to the computer resources and ser- vices of the digital platform and using the services of the platform
  • Facilitator: Professional responsible for facilitating the community of practice or a sub-part of it. He or she may also be the moderator of one or more forums within the community.
  • Participant : Any professional or user who has been pre-registered and who participates in the activities of the collaborative platform to which he or she has access.
  • Moderator: Any professional intervening on the forum in terms of moderation and vigilance regarding the respect of the rules of use.

This charter can be consulted at any time on the ShareProCare collaborative platform website. ShareProCare reserves the right to modify it. Any use of the collaborative platform implies acceptance of this charter and any changes to it.

How to interact on the ShareProCare platform?

This platform allows members to propose innovative solutions, share needs or publish experiences related to the proposed solutions and needs. It is also possible for members to exchange on the community forum.

What is the purpose of the forum?

The forum is a place for discussion and exchange, where ShareProCare members can exchange information and ideas on a specific topic. Each member can open a topic based or not on  the solutions and needs expressed in the dedicated sections of the platform.

In which language should I express myself?

The members come from different European countries. In order to allow exchanges between contributors of all nationalities, the platform is translated using an automatic translation tool. In order to guarantee the proper functioning, it is recommended to pay attention to the syntax and spelling of its interventions.


I.  Access and registration

To access the participatory features of the community, you need to be registered as a member of the ShareProCare community. This registration is done online via the “register” tab, from a web browser.

Registration to ShareProCare is free and open. A login and a password are required for the collaborative platform and the member area of the website.

When you register, a profile is created and is accessible to other members as soon as you post a solution, a need, an experience or create or participate in a discussion on the forum. Thanks to this profile, other participants can consult your various activities on the forum: topics launched or contributions.

Your contributions are signed by your email address which is your identifier on the different participatory tools (sharing solutions, needs, experience and exchanges on the forum).

From the first connection to the collaborative platform, the new member of the community agrees to respect the conditions described in the charter of use.

A participant account can be deleted:

  • By the participant who would have asked the moderators to delete his account. Consequently, the participant will no longer have access to the resources of the collaborative platform. His or her posted messages will still be visible to other parti- cipants, under the identity “deleted profile”.
  • By the ShareProCare administrators, in the event of non-compliance by the partici- pant with the rules of this charter.

In the event of failure to comply with these rules, they may be led to exclude temporarily or permanently a user who does not comply with this charter.

Redundant messages will also be subject to moderation, as well as messages that are contrary to public order or morality, violent, racist, revisionist, glorifying war crimes, insulting or coarse, contrary to copyright or related rights, the law applicable to databases, trademark law, image rights, the right to privacy and professional secrecy, or that violate any other legislative or regulatory provision in force.
