Computer Usage

Access to computer facilities and networks is granted subject to local, state, and federal laws and Employer ABC policies.  Following acceptable use is ethical, honest, and shows restraint in the consumption of shared resources.  It demonstrates respect for electronic property, ownership of data and system security mechanisms, and individuals' rights to privacy.

Employees are responsible for all usage on their account(s).  Employees must protect their password(s).  Employees shall not use another individual’s account under any circumstances.

·         Account(s) may only be used for the intended purpose.  Accounts may not be used for personal or financial gain, such as working for profit.

·         Copying or modifying any ABC-owned software without approval from authorized personnel is strictly prohibited.

·         Engaging in activities that damage or disrupt hardware or communications, waste system resources, and overloading networks with excessive data is strictly prohibited.  An example is creating viruses.
