Though only small at the moment the CRPS Community was created with the ability to become a global Community, where our ethos is one of transparency, respect for disability and freedom of information, which we believe will create greater understanding and connection between all peoples.
We actively promote openness and transparency by giving our members greater power to share and connect, and certain doctrines guide us in pursuing these goals. Achieving these should be constrained only by limitations of law and technology. We therefore establish these doctrines as the foundation of the rights and responsibilities of those that use our services.
People should have the freedom to share whatever information they want, in any medium and any format, and have the right to connect online with anyone - any person, organisation or service - as long as they both consent to the connection.
Ownership and Control of Information
People should own their information. They should have the freedom to share it with anyone they want and take it with them anywhere they want, including removing it from this website. People should have the freedom to decide with whom they will share their information, and to set privacy controls to protect those choices. Those controls, however, are not capable of limiting how those who have received information may use it.
Free Flow of Information
People should have the freedom to access all of the information made available to them by others. People should also have practical tools that make it easy, quick, and efficient to share and access this information.
Fundamental Equality Social Value
People should have the freedom to build trust and reputation through their identity and connections, and should not have their presence removed for reasons other than those described in our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities.
The CRPS Community should transcend geographic and national boundaries and be available to everyone in the world.
