The HPC Network is a secure, shared on-line environment and professional networking tool that provides private and public workplaces for people and communities involved in promoting health and wellness. The platform is the same one used for MSN MySpace. See About Us.
Only registered users of the HPC Network can post feedback or comments
and make full use of the communication tools provided. Anonymous users
can only view the public areas and content. Registered users with permissions to private content and tools, must first sign-in to their account to access these areas. See Registered User.
Registration is obtained by clicking on the Join link at the top left of the page or the notebook icon on the home page. All requests must be approved by the network administrator before an account becomes active. You will recieve notification when the account is approved.
The HPC Network is committed to Canada's two federal privacy laws, the Privacy Act and Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA). Please Note:
The servers for this Network are in Virginia and California. The Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act does
not protect information processed or stored outside of Canada. See the Findings or Privacy Issues Discussion.
To protect our registered users, the HPC Network does not collect
any personal information about our registered users other than login
name, network passwords and email address. While we do encourage registered users to complete the on-line profile
information, the only profile setting that is required is your email address (which is not visible to other users unless you choose it to be). Only volunteer information about yourself that you are comfortable with in a public forum.
The role of the Network administrator is to develop, create,
monitor, maintain, support and provide the training for individualized
web spaces and communication tools provided on this network. The administrator will work with you to modify existing templates and intial content. However, once training is provided, groups and individuals are encouraged to maintain their own content. See Free Training & Support.
There are both public and private areas within the Network. Private areas are secure and cannot be accessed without sign-in and approved membership to the specific group that owns that space. However, the Network administrator has access to all areas (including private spaces) for monitoring and stats gathering and reserves the right to ban any members whose conduct is inappropriate (inappropriate language or content, personal attacks or bullying).
Please Note: All content within the established web space and
tools provided to a group or individual is the sole responsibility of
the the individuals within that group.
