Frequently Asked Questions: Inappropriate Content

What is the SRCF's policy on inappropriate content?

Inappropriate content is deemed to be any content that is in contravention of the CUDN rules and guidelines, or JANET AUP. Amongst other things these rules prohibit using the CUDN to store or transmit material that is obscene, defamatory, offensive or violates a third party's copyright. If such material comes to the attention of the sysadmins or committee the responsible user will be required to remove it. In the case of gross and flagrant breaches of the rules the sysadmins may remove the material themselves. The account of a user responsible for prohibited material may be suspended and they may be reported to the Computing Service.

So in summary, don't do it!

What should I do if I find something I consider to be inappropriate hosted by the SRCF?

Please let the user or society that controls the content know that you consider it inappropriate, and explain why with reference to the SRCF's Terms of Service, CUDN rules and guidelines, or JANET AUP. For pages with URLs of the form:
