Protecting the University’s good name
You are responsible for knowing the regulations and policies of the University that apply to your use of University technologies and resources. You are responsible for exercising good judgment in use of the University’s technological, digital and information resources.
As a representative of the Princeton University community, you are expected to respect the University’s good name in your electronic dealings with those both within and outside the University.
Those who participate in social media as representatives or agents of the University should consult the Office of Communications’ social media policies (www.princeton.edu/socialmediapolicies) for guidance.
Use of the University's name
As stated in RRR, “No individual or organization of the University may use the name Princeton University or a name that suggests Princeton University, or the name of any Princeton University organization, except to the extent such individual or organization has been officially recognized by the proper University authorities or as permitted under trademark law.” Deliberate misuse of the name of the University or other trademarks by any member of the University community will be regarded as a serious offense.
The “people search” facility on the Princeton University home page returns a policy statement on acceptable use with the results of a search. The statement is intended to prevent misuse of contact information by marketers and others. If a department provides a “people search” feature as part of a departmental website, it should include a similar statement, and information available to the public must be consistent with the University's policy on student information (RRR).
Information in Princeton University’s on-line campus directory is provided solely for use by members of the Princeton University community and by others who wish to reach a specific individual or resource at the University. Use of the information for solicitation by mail, e-mail, telephone, or other means, or for creation of a database for such use or for other purposes, is prohibited. Any member of the University community who misuses the data in such a way may be subject to disciplinary action.
The privilege of using University equipment, wiring, wireless access, computer and network systems and servers, broadcast media, and access to global communications and information resources is provided to members of the University community and may not be transferred or extended by members of the campus community to people or groups outside the University without authorization. This includes providing network service to others through your own University network connection. Network service to residential units leased by the University may be extended to sublessors only when University Housing has approved the sublease.
