Acceptable Use Policy (AUP)
The NUS IT Acceptable Use Policy prescribes the appropriate behaviour and use of IT Resources by students, faculty, staff and authorised users in an effective, ethical and lawful manner. It sets out the parameters of permitted use of the IT Resources and is in addition to any other policies that govern the use of the IT Resources.
This Policy applies to the use of information technology resources owned, controlled or managed by the University (‘the IT Resources’). It sets out the parameters of permitted use of the IT Resources and is in addition to any other policies that govern the use of the IT Resources. In the event of a conflict between other policies and this Policy, this Policy shall prevail.
All users who have been granted access to the IT Resources (‘Users’), including but not limited to students, faculty, staff and alumni of the University, are to comply with this Policy. Contractors, consultants, vendors and contract workers (including their employees, agents and other authorised representatives) (‘Contingent Workers’) hired by a staff or faculty of the University (‘Hiring Manager’) are also to comply with this Policy. Where Users are granted extended access to the IT Resources beyond their terms of employment, for limited purposes connected to the University (‘Extended Account Users’), all provisions of this Policy shall continue to apply with the same force and effect.
