Privacy, Security & Legal
These sites are owned by The Regents of the University of California and operated by UCLA. UCLA encourages the use of these sites as a way to share information and knowledge in support of the University's three-part mission of education, research and public service. Site content is subject to change without notice. While most sites are publicly accessible, certain services and information offered online may be restricted to specific users or segments of the UCLA population.
Computers and networks can provide access to resources on and off campus, as well as the ability to communicate with other users worldwide. Such open access is a privilege, and requires that individuals act responsibly.
Acceptance of Terms
UCLA grants permission to members of the University community to use computing resources by issuing individual computing accounts including UCLA Logon IDs. In order to create a UCLA Logon, you must first agree to the terms below. You may not create an account if you do not accept the terms. Continuing with the account creation process constitutes agreement.
As a condition of receiving an account, you must observe the following guidelines:
- Respect the rights of other users, respect the integrity of the systems and related physical resources, and observe all relevant laws, regulations, and contractual obligations.
- Respect others' rights to the privacy of their programs and data.
- Prevent others from learning your password, thus reducing the possibility of illegal use of your account by unauthorized persons.
- Report suspected unauthorized use of facility resources to the BOL User Relations Office (Kerckhoff Hall, Suite 124) or to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Your UCLA Logon may not be used for: unlawful activities; commercial purposes not under the auspices of the University; or personal financial gain (except as permitted under applicable academic policies).
You may not agree to the terms and may not proceed with account creation if (a) you are not of legal age to form a binding contract, or (b) you are barred from accepting the terms under the laws of the United States or the country from which you are creating this account.
For both your personal benefit and the benefit of others, you must assume responsibility for making the best possible use of your privileges and for not abusing them. All existing laws (federal and state) and University regulations and policies apply, including not only those laws and regulations that are specific to computers and networks, but also those that may apply generally to personal conduct.
Consequences of Misuse
Misuse of computing, networking or information resources may result in the loss of computing privileges. Additionally, misuse of a computing account will require financial restitution to the University for funds expended and could result in University disciplinary action or civil or criminal action.
Users may be held accountable for their conduct under any applicable University or campus policies, procedures or collective bargaining agreements. Any actions which deter other users from doing their work or which would otherwise be deemed malicious by the University will result in the loss of access to the system and possible University disciplinary action or civil or criminal action. Unauthorized use of computing resources and use for personal gain constitute theft under California law and will be prosecuted by the University.
Complaints alleging misuse of resources will be directed to those responsible for taking appropriate disciplinary action.
