Key points to ResNet and User responsibilities are as follows:
The network is owned by the College and the College maintains the right to provide further regulation, as it deems appropriate, to limit use or access, and to monitor the systems used for security purposes. Users, by their use of the network, accept the College's rights in this regard. The College does not intend, as a matter of Policy, to monitor the use of technology (including e-mail) and will respect individual privacy to the extent feasible. However, the College expects users to be responsible in their use of the network. Faculty, staff, employees, students, and agents of the College agree to refrain from any private communication which suggests that there is College approval of such communication. Further, the Information Technologies group may, if deems it necessary or appropriate, conduct monitoring of resources in order to ensure reasonable maintenance of system hardware, software, data, network traffic, or security. If such monitoring involves the reading of file information, e-mail, or documents, or accessing the user's computer, the owner of the resources will be provided prior notice, whenever possible.
If a user performs a function that adversely impacts others on the network, he or she will be required to terminate that work immediately. Any further violation of this Policy may lead to the loss of network privileges as approved by the appropriate Dean or Vice President. Offenders may be subject to College disciplinary procedures as well as criminal or civil prosecution. Any appeals should follow appropriate College grievance procedures.
