The Rules of the Electronic Road
- You are the only person who can use a resource that
has been assigned to you.
- Do not give your password to anyone else, even your
friends. If you suspect that someone may have discovered or guessed
your password, change it immediately.
- You are responsible for all activity for the resource assigned
- You will also be responsible for destructive or illegal activity
done by someone to whom you gave access.
- Misuse of any campus computer system can result in loss of access
to all systems.
- You will not be paid for profit from the use of any
College-provided resource. Examples are:
- You may not post advertisements for products that you sell or make
- You may not post chain letters from which you hope to profit
- Never use any College-provided resource to do something illegal,
threatening, or deliberately destructive -- not even as a joke.
All complaints will be investigated.
- Ignorance is no excuse
- You cannot be exempt from the law because you are a student
or just playing around.
- Be civil. Do not send rude or harassing e-mail.
- Use resources appropriately.
- Do not falsify e-mail or newsgroup postings.
- All messages must correctly identify the sender.
- Be careful of copyright infringement. Copyright laws
are still evolving. Duplicating other people's text or graphics can
get you into trouble, even if the work did not contain a copyright
- Never try to circumvent login procedures on any computer
system or otherwise gain access where you are not allowed. This is not
acceptable under any circumstances.
Remember, a computer account is a privilege, not a right. Treat it as such.
