IT Acceptable Use Policy

This policy is for UAS users of the ACN.

All computer users should review and be familiar with the Unified Administrative Service (UAS) policies and associated documents below:

  • Information Services Committee Rules and Guidelines (Use and Misuse of Computing Facilities).

  • UIS records network traffic and user connections and this data can be used to investigate possible infringement of this policy.

  • UIS reserves the right to refuse access, or to withdraw access from facilities in the event of any infringement of these rules.

  • Where appropriate, upon departure or absence, access may be granted to a user's e-mail and/or personal drives for business purposes, if requested by a senior officer of their department or institution.

  • Access to UAS computing resources normally requires user authorisation through the use of a user CRSid and associated password. It is explicitly forbidden to share a CRSid identifier and associated password with a colleague or third party. See the password policy for UAS users on the ACN.
