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.
