071.7 Use of University World Wide Web Servers by Outside Organizations


A. Background

Many Furman employees are involved with, and contribute to, church, civic, and other not-for-profit, community-oriented organizations. Some employees wish to contribute to these organizations by placing information about them on Furman's World Wide Web servers.


B. Policy

Furman University wishes to support these employee activities provided that they do not have a detrimental effect on the operations of the University and provided that they do not conflict with other university policies and procedures.


C. Guidelines

1. Furman employees may place information about outside, not-for-profit organizations on their personal World Wide Web pages, subject to the provisions of university policies and procedures.

2. If the Chief Information Officer considers that use of this facility is having a detrimental effect on university systems or servers, he may request to have certain pages or data removed. If the employee or student responsible for these pages or data cannot be reached or does not remove them in a timely manner, the Information Technology Services staff may remove them at its discretion. Reasons for removal include, but are not restricted to, consumption of excessive amounts of disk space, excessive network activity, or consumption of resources needed for official university business.

3. The content of these web pages must not imply endorsement by Furman University.
