Kirtland requires all members of its community to use electronic communications in a manner that is respectful to others. This Internet Account Administration policy was designed to protect users’ privacy, to protect the System or Network Administrator (SNA) in the performance of his or her job, to allow routine administrative actions that might affect users’ files, to provide a mechanism to allow non-routine, non-emergency access to users’ files, and to provide guidelines for the occasional need to take immediate action.
While respecting users’ confidentiality and privacy, Kirtland reserves the right to examine all computer files, subject to the requirements set forth in this policy.
Kirtland may restrict the use of its computers and network systems for electronic communications when faced with evidence of violation of college policies or federal, state, or local laws.
Kirtland reserves the right to limit access to its networks through college-owned or other computers, and to remove or limit access to material posted on college-owned computers.
Kirtland College and users recognize that all members of the college community are bound by federal and local laws relating to civil rights, harassment, copyright, security and other statutes relating to electronic media. It should be understood that this policy does not preclude enforcement of applicable laws and regulations of the United States of America.
