Access to information technology resources owned or operated by Knox College is a privilege and imposes certain responsibilities and obligations, and is granted subject to College policies, and local, state, and federal laws. Acceptable use always is ethical, reflects academic honesty, and shows restraint in the consumption of shared resources. It demonstrates respect for intellectual property, ownership of data, system security mechanisms, and individuals? rights to privacy and to freedom from intimidation and harassment. It does not bring the reputation of the College into disrepute.
Information technology resources are defined as all computer-related equipment, computer systems, software/network applications, interconnecting networks, facsimile machines, voice-mail and other telecommunications facilities, as well as all information contained therein owned or managed by Knox College.
