The RIPRC Provider Portal: User Agreement

Community Policy
Welcome to the RIPRC Provider Portal. The Portal is a private online communication forum for BHDDH-funded prevention providers in Rhode Island to connect, share knowledge and resources, collaborate, address challenges, and document successes and lessons learned, so that we may promote positive change in RI communities together.

The Provider Portal is a safe, respectful, welcoming place for providers to share, connect, collaborate, and learn together. We expect all users to be polite and respectful in their interactions with others and to refrain from any personal attacks. Additionally, the Portal is not a place for political lobbying (legislative advocacy) or legislation creation and any posted content deemed as such, will be removed at the sole discretion of our funder BHDDH.

Interaction Guidelines
To ensure that this communication forum is a safe, respectful and useful place for all users please:

  1. Review posted comments before diving in with a reaction-based response.
  2. Carefully choose your language, be tactful and mindful of your tone – it is easy to misinterpret intent online.
  3. If you find inappropriate content or see disrespectful behavior on this site, please notify an administrator immediately . We expect that all users treat each other with mutual respect.
  4. Before sharing anything from the Provider Portal outside of the Portal including: resources, forum posts, contact information, etc. users must obtain permission from the posting provider. If you can not reach the provider, please contact the RIPRC team with your permission request.
  5. Connect with your colleagues, share resources, contribute to the forums, and utilize the many features of the Provider Portal to improve your prevention work!

  4. Impersonate another person.
  5. Allow any other person or entity to use your identification to access and/or use the Portal or share content posted on the Provider Portal outside of the Portal.

All features on the Portal are moderated — the RIPRC Team will review all forum topics, posts, comments, resources, and events after they are posted. RIPRC reserves the right to do any or all of the following:

  1. Remove content that is abusive, illegal or disruptive, or that otherwise fails to conform with this User Agreement.
