Wireless Guest Accounts
Departments must send a request to ITSD@ua.edu for a wireless guest account and be responsible for its use.
This UA Public wireless registration account created for use by your department should only be released to visiting professionals/vendors who require Internet access to conduct business affiliated with the University of Alabama. The account will be active for guest registration for one year. Once the registration has expired, a representative of your department will need to send an email to ITSD@ua.edu to reactive the account.
By accepting this account information, you are agreeing to the following terms and conditions:
A. Each account is for the exclusive use of the individual or organization to whom it was assigned and users may not allow or facilitate access, including by a proxy or anonymous remailer, to University computer accounts, equipment, or restricted files or systems by others. Authorized users are faculty or staff who are employed by the University and currently enrolled students, unless their access privileges have been revoked by the University.
B. The use of the account may not violate any policy of the University.
C. The use must not overload the University’s computing equipment or systems, or otherwise negatively impact the system’s performance.
D. The use must not result in commercial gain or benefit to the users and cannot constitute consulting for a business or running a business. The page or site may not promote commercial activities or display paid advertising.
E. The use may not violate laws or University policies against discrimination or harassment due to race, sex, religion, disability, age, or other protected status.
F. The use may not violate state laws or University policies on the use of University equipment, resources, or time for political activities.
G. The use must not involve sending of soliciting chain letters, nor may it involve sending unsolicited bulk mail messages (e.g., “junk mail,” or “spam”).
H. The use may not imply or state University sponsorship or endorsement, nor use University trademarks without permission of the University’s Licensing Program.
I. The use may not involve unauthorized passwords or identifying data that attempts to circumvent system security or in any way attempts to gain unauthorized access.
J. A Web site or page or personal collection of electronic material that is accessible to others must include and display the following disclaimer: “The views, opinions, and conclusions expressed in this page are those of the author or organization and are not necessarily those of The University of Alabama or its officers or trustees. The content of this page has not been reviewed or approved by The University of Alabama, and the author or organization is solely responsible for its content.”
K. The University may examine personal electronic information stored on or passing over University equipment or networks, for the following purposes: (1) to ensure security and operating performance of its computer systems and networks; (2) to enforce University policies or compliance with state or federal law where (a) examination is approved in advance by a dean, vice president, or the president, and either (b) there is reasonable suspicion that a law or University policy has been violated and examination is appropriate to investigate the apparent violation, or (c) examination is necessary to comply with state or federal law. Computer users should have no expectation of privacy in personal material sent, received, or stored by them on or over University computing systems or networks when conditions of subparagraph (1), or both (2a) and (2b), or both (2a) and (2c) above have been satisfied.
L. Use that violates the terms of the account agreement, state or federal law, or any University policy may result in referral for action under the appropriate disciplinary procedure and the imposition of sanctions which may include suspension or revocation of access privileges in addition to other sanctions.
