- not willingly divulge passwords and other access control information for their personal accounts to any other person.
Users must...
- not use or attempt to use computing facilities or accounts to which they have not been granted explicit access by an appropriate system administrator
- use computing facilities and services only for the purposes for which they were authorized
- respect all copyrights and licenses associated with university computing facilities
- not attempt to interfere with the normal operation of a shared system
- not attempt to encroach on others' use of computing facilities or to deprive others of resources
- not attempt to subvert the restrictions associated with their computing accounts
