UpUnet-S Acceptable Use Policy (AUP)
As an active student at Uppsala University you can have access to the
university computer network UpUnet, and through it SUNET and other
parts of the Internet. To be able to use the services that are associated
with Uppsala University's network for students - UpUnet-S - you must
apply for a personal user identity. With the identity comes for example,

and a file area. You will keep the same e-mail address and username
throughout your study period at the university.

research at Uppsala University.

UpUnet and connected department networks are, from a computer
security point of view, to be regarded as open. You must consequently
always consider the risk that unauthorized persons overhear your traffic.
If you, e.g. in connection with an examination or essay, are transferring
sensitive or classified information (e.g. personal information) over the
network, you are required to protect it in a suitable way, for instance
through encryption. All handling of personal information must be done
according to the Swedish Personal Data Protection Act (SFS 1998:204),
and in all other ways adhere to Swedish legislation.
Marketing via E-mail
When you apply for an UpUnet-S account and in the web interface in
the authorization system you can state that you do not wish to have your
e-mail address used for marketing by e-mail. This does not mean that socalled SPAM can be fully avoided, only that the university will strive to
keep your e-mail address from being used for marketing purposes.
Logging of the Traffic
When you receive permission to use UpUnet you automatically allow
your network traffic to be logged, and that the network security personnel
at the IT Support Department, who have been given this responsibility
by the university, may inspect these logs.
Connecting Computers
When you connect your computer to UpUnet-S to reach the outside
world, other students can reach your computer in the same way. You
must consequently protect your computer. Furthermore, you must see to
it that you do not expose your files unintentionally, e.g. file sharing services.
When your computer is connected to UpUnet-S you must not
simultaneously have any modem that others can dial in to, a wireless
network or any other public network connected to your computer.
Different operating systems demand different efforts in order to be safe.
You are personally solely responsible for the safe connection of your
Violation of these Rules
Any person violating or being suspected of violating these rules can be
disconnected from the network for enquiry. Furthermore, disciplinary or
legal actions may be taken.
