Acceptable Usage Policy
Providing an efficient and reliable computing and networking service depends on the cooperation of all users. It is therefore important that you are aware of your responsibilities to other users and to the providers of services.
You must use the resources in a responsible manner and you must respect the integrity of computer systems, networks and data to which you have access, and follow any rules and regulations governing their use.
In particular you are not permitted to:
- engage in activities which waste resources (people, networks, computers);
- engage in activities which are liable to cause a disruption or denial of service to other users;
- use computer or network resources to access or distribute offensive, obscene, abusive, or threatening material;
- use computer or network resources for any activities which contravene the laws of the State, or of the destination country in the case of data being transmitted abroad;
- use computer or network resources for commercial activities which are not a part of your work in UCC;
- infringe copyright or the proprietary rights of software;
- share userIDs or usernames, transfer them to other users, or divulge your passwords to other users;
- access, modify, or interfere with computer material, data, displays, or storage media belonging to the University or another user, except with their permission.
- connect unauthorised equipment to the campus network or public data networks.
- While network traffic is not normally monitored, it may be necessary if there is reason to suspect that this Acceptable Use Policy is being breached, or for the purposes of backup or problem-solving. You must therefore be aware that such monitoring may occur.
- Where you knowingly access chargeable services (eg commercial online databases) you and/or your department will be liable for any charges incurred.
- If you keep (or intend keeping) personal data about others on a computer, you may need to comply with the provisions of the Data Protection Act, 1988, and any subsequent legislation.
- All undergraduate userIDs will be removed after the Autumn examinations each year.
- This Acceptable Use Policy is reviewed from time to time and any new regulations must be observed by all users. Failure to comply with these regulations will result in the service being withdrawn.
- The attention of all network users is drawn to the fact that attempts at `hacking' across networks may result in criminal prosecution here or elsewhere.
- The sending of SPAM (unsolicited bulk e-mail) is a breach of this Acceptable Use Policy.
