University Policies Manual: Appropriate Use of Computing and Network Resources

Relevant excerpt

Free expression of ideas is central to the academic process. However, the University may remove any electronic information from its systems if it is determined that:

  • The presence of the information involves illegality (e.g., copyrighted material, software used in violation of a license agreement).
  • The information in some way endangers computing, network resources, or the information of other users (e.g., a computer worm, virus, or other destructive program).
  • The information is not in compliance with the legal and ethical usage governed by Federal or State law or regulation, or with the University or Institutions of Higher Learning policies.
  • The cost of maintaining the information is deemed prohibitive by the responsible administrative unit.
  • The user is no longer authorized for access.
