This document has been drawn up to describe the service staff and students can expect when using the wiki service supported by Information Systems at UCL. It is a communication tool to help manage expectations, clarify responsibilities, and provide an objective basis for assessing service effectiveness.
- If you are a space owner, you are responsible for the content you create and for maintaining an active awareness of changes made to your wiki by those you have given permission to edit pages.
- No attempt should be made to pass off wiki content as being officially sanctioned by UCL without approval from the relevant head of department.
- It is recommended that members of departments check with their head before setting up a department-wide wiki.
- In accordance with the UCL Computing Regulations, you must not create, store, download or transmit material that is offensive, obscene or indecent. Such materials will always include, but at UCL's discretion may not be limited to, such materials as are deemed offensive, obscene or indecent under The Obscene Publications Act 1959, The Sex Discrimination Act 1975, The Race Relations Act 1976, The Protection of Children Act 1978, The Public Order Act 1986, and the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994.
- You will not impersonate someone else, send messages which purport to come from someone else, or use a forged address (spoofing) , or adopt an inappropriate username.
- IS Information Systems and UCL reserve the right to cancel, suspend or remove a space, if it has been set up without the necessary authority.
- Information Systems and UCL have the right to remove, edit, move or close any wiki at any time should they see fit.
- Wiki-users should not give anonymous write access to pages or comments. If such access is given, it is switched off automatically. Spaces persistently enabling such access will be removed.
- Spaces need to be reregistered each year. Spaces found to be dead or ownerless will first have most of their access rights removed and then they will be archived (in a .zip file).
- Failure to comply with the conditions in this document or UCL's Computing Regulations may lead to UCL disciplinary procedures being invoked, with penalties that include suspension from the use of all UCL computing facilities for extended periods. Serious cases may lead to expulsion or dismissal from UCL and may involve civil or criminal action being taken against you.
