2. Account Creation

Accounts made for a University unit must be created by an authorized representative of the University.

In order to comply with most platforms' terms and conditions, and to enable the University to assess authorized accounts and platforms, any unit wishing to create an account with a social media platform should provide the University's Social Media Coordinator with information about such accounts, along with the contact information for the individual(s) who will be authorized by the department to create, operate, monitor and edit accounts on an ongoing basis (i.e. the “Page Administrator”). Students may not be named as administrators.

A unit's authorized administrator(s) must maintain the security of account passwords and identification. These individuals are fully responsible for all use of accounts and any actions that take place using the account.
