As per University Policies, By-Laws, and Federal Legislation, the University monitors internet usage by both staff and students to limit inappropriate use.
Examples of such inappropriate use include:
- pornographic material.
- peer-to-peer traffic such as BitTorrent, and including applications such as Limewire, Azureus, uTorrent, Emule, or Shareaza.
- excessive downloads, due to either direct downloading or excessive use of streaming sites such as YouTube.
Furthermore, if other types of inappropriate use are reported, the Pro Vice-Chancellor of your faculty may request an audit of your internet and email usage.
Other examples of inappropriate behaviour include harassing or abusive email messages to fellow students or staff.
You are responsible for the activity associated with your internet account. If you are found to be responsible for inappropriate use of the internet without justification, your internet account will be suspended / terminated pending review by the Pro Vice-Chancellor of your faculty and the Director of Information Technology Management and Support.
