The use of these Computer Resources is a privilege extended to members of the Belmont community, who are expected to act in a responsible, ethical, and legal manner.

As with other university policies, violation of the Acceptable Use Policy can result in disciplinary action.

This policy applies to all users of computer and network resources owned or managed by Belmont University. Resources include all university owned, licensed, or managed hardware and software, as well as the university network, regardless of the ownership of the device connected to the network, the means of connecting, or the locale from which the connection is made.

The university takes various measures to protect its information resources and users’ accounts. However, you should be aware that the university cannot guarantee privacy and that it is the responsibility of individual users to engage in prudent practices by establishing appropriate access restrictions for their accounts and safeguarding their passwords in accord with the Password Policy.
