Rights and Responsibilities: Appropriate Use of Email 06-07

Relevant excerpt

Appropriate Use of E-mail
Granite State College policy prohibits certain types of e-mail. These include mail
that may be perceived as harassment, political campaigning, or commercial
solicitation. Mass mailings and chain mail are also prohibited because they
consume large amounts of system resources. Use of e-mail for private or personal
business is not permitted. However, incidental personal use is permissible so long
as: 1) it does not consume more than a trivial amount of resources; 2) it does not
interfere with staff productivity; and 3) it does not preempt any business activity.
Clients shall not stalk others, post, transmit, or originate any unlawful, threatening,
abusive, fraudulent, hateful, defamatory, obscene, or pornographic communication,
or any communication where the message, or its transmission or distribution,
would constitute or would encourage conduct that would constitute a criminal
offense, give rise to civil liability, or violate any local, state, national, or
international law.
