Even though these types of programs can help users to
share files and speed up communications between peers it can also affect
the network performance dramatically and may expose AUC to legal proceedings
if illegal materials were downloaded or stored on AUC property.
To protect the interest of AUC and maintain our network
quality of service we came up with this policy to manage and control
usage of such programs by all users at AUC.
Users are not allowed to download or upload any copy
righted files, programs, applications, tools, images, movies or
any other downloadable materials onto AUC property. All programs
found on AUC computer property should be licensed and legally acquired
with proof documents. The ACS provides the AUC community with licensed
programs, for more information please visit : http://acs.aucegypt.edu/licenprog.html
Users are not allowed to download any materials not
related to AUC business during working hours.
Users downloading legal materials from home should
only do so during off business hours.
AUC will reserve the right to monitor illegal activities
and audit randomly selected machines to make sure that this policy
is fully implemented.
Proven Violators will face several levels of punishments
according to the type of violation that includes but not limited
to other Policies
