UCM’s Computer/Network External User Agreement 

    This agreement must be completed by anyone other than students and employees requesting network access
    accounts for UCM’s computer networks before accounts will be established and released to requesters. 
    Persons who are allowed access to UCM’s computing facilities must agree to be bound to the same 
    policies/procedures/regulations as those who are employed by the university. Information regarding these 
    policies/procedures/regulations is available at www.ucmo.edu/ot -> Topical Index -> Regulations and 
    Procedures. Any use of UCM's computer facilities for activities that are illegal or commercial is expressly 
    forbidden. Also, use of UCM's computer and network facilities must comply with the MOREnet Acceptable Use 
    Policy. MOREnet's AUP, in addition to expressly forbidding commercial and illegal use, forbids use of the 
    network in a manner that is harmful or harassing to others and in a manner that disrupts normal network use 
    and service. MOREnet's AUP is available at www.more.net -> Membership -> Service Policies. 

    A few examples of inappropriate use include: 
    • Sending threatening or harassing electronic email.
    • Accessing computer accounts and/or computer files other than your own without express permission.
    • Making illegal copies of copyrighted software, music, or movies for either your own use or for distribution. 
    • Using UCM's facilities to conduct business for personal profit. 
    • Using the network in a manner that negatively impacts other users; for example, excessive bandwidth use with uploading and downloading files using Peer-2-Peer software in a non-business related activity, port-scanning, traffic monitoring, installing malicious or spy-ware programs intentionally, or sending unwanted mail messages to large quantities of persons. 

    When users leave their workstations, they must log off the network or secure their workstations to prevent 
    unauthorized use. Users must also close all applications and turn off the desktop computer when they have 
    completed computing work and are leaving for the day. Software installed by users may create security risks. 
    Users must not download software from the Internet, as the software may be contaminated with viruses or 
    other security problems. Software must not be installed on university equipment without a valid license. 

    I have read the above statements, and I agree to abide by them. I understand that the network ID and password listed will be assigned to me, and I am responsible for any activity that takes place via this ID and password.
