Explanation of ITS Policies & Procedures

Lincoln Land Community College provides computing resources in order to advance the College’s mission and to meet the educational and professional needs of students, faculty, and staff. Ability to access computing resources does not, by itself, imply authorization to do so. Users are responsible for ascertaining what authorizations are necessary and for obtaining them before proceeding. Accounts and passwords may not, under any circumstances, be shared with, or used by, persons other than those to whom they have been assigned by the College.

Users should also be aware that some types of computer abuse (notably intentional damage, and unauthorized alteration of or access to computing systems) are also violations of Illinois and Federal criminal codes, as is the unauthorized reproduction of copyrighted software.

The policies contained in this section apply to all faculty, staff, students, volunteers, and guests of Lincoln Land Community College who use the Lincoln Land Community College Network and to all the Web and information servers operating on the Lincoln Land Community College Network.

The Lincoln Land Community College Information Network may not be used in any manner prohibited by federal, state, or local law or disallowed by contracts and licenses. Examples of such laws, rules, policies, contracts, and licenses include the laws of libel, privacy, copyright, trademark, obscenity, and child pornography; the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, and the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, which prohibit "hacking," "cracking," and similar activities and all applicable software licenses. Users who engage in electronic communications with persons in other states or countries or on other systems or networks should be aware that they may also be subject to the laws of those other states and countries and the rules and policies of those other systems and networks. Users are responsible for ascertaining, understanding, and complying with the laws, rules, policies, contracts, and licenses applicable to their particular uses.
