Acceptable Use of Information Technology Resources

Bergen Community College provides a rich information technology environment to support its educational activities and administrative functions. These resources, including computing systems and software, as well as internal and external data, voice, and video networks, are shared resources. To preserve them for the common good, the College expects all users, including students, faculty, staff, administrators, other employees, and members of the general public using the College’s information technology resources to comply in all respects to institutional and external standards for their appropriate use. Although incidental personal use is permitted, these resources should be used primarily for College educational and administrative purposes, and such incidental personal use must conform to these same standards of appropriate use. By using College information technology resources, users agree to abide by all College acceptable use and related policies and procedures, as well as applicable federal, state, and local laws. The College reserves the right to bar access to its network or other information technology resources to those who violate its acceptable use and related policies and procedures. Further, violations may result in disciplinary action, including suspension, dismissal, and legal proceedings.
