E-mail correspondence between MPC staff to students or the community directly related to the completion of the college`s tasks and business must be made via the official email address MPC.edu. Any official correspondence with a preferred or indicated email address that is not an MPC email address is considered a violation of this Policy. MPC students should be responsible for checking MPC.edu e-mail often for communication from the university and its staff. The MPC administration recognizes that there are exceptions to this directive, for example. B when contacted by former students who no longer use university e-mail or by students interested in studies who have not yet received their email address. This agreement on the authorized use of computers and networks relates to the use of computer and telecommunications resources at Grand Rapids Community College (GRCC). The college makes these resources available specifically to support its mission and business processes. All users accessed to the RCMPCnet and the Internet are responsible for complying with codes of conduct, rules, laws and regulations relating to the use of computer resources and telecommunications. Examples include the laws of defamation, data protection, copyright, branding, obscenity, child pornography, the Electronic Communication Privacy Act and the Fraud and Computer Abuse Act. Any attempt to violate these laws through the use of the RCMPCnet may result in criminal prosecution and/or prosecution of the offender by the competent authorities.
Should such an event occur, the RCMPC will fully respect these authorities in order to provide all necessary information for the process. The university network is called GRCCnet and provides its students, collaborators and clients (hereafter referred to as users) with access to local, government, national and international IT resources through networks outside the CSF. It is the responsibility of these external networks to impose their own acceptable agreements and usage policies. GRCC assumes no responsibility for network traffic that violates the acceptable use agreement for directly or indirectly related networks, with the exception of informing the user that he/she may be violated if the RCMPC external network connects him or her. The system administrator reserves the right to monitor the use of all network resources to ensure compliance with this directive, college policy and federal, regional and local laws. User files can be searched by law enforcement agencies by judicial order if these files contain information that can be used as evidence in court. I understand that any violation of this agreement will lead to disciplinary action that may include, but is not limited: written discipline, revocation of the user`s accounts, termination of the employment relationship, suspension or exclusion of the RCMPC and/or legal action by THE GRCC. Permanent revocations may result from recommendations from the Information Technology Division of the RCMPC or other authorities that can be used to investigate computer and/or network abuses.
