Acceptable Use Policy of the Computer Center


31 March 1998

On the basis of Art. 5 Section 3 No. 3 of the Bavarian Higher Education Act (Bayerisches Hochschulgesetz, BayHSchG) of 1 December 1993 (published in the law gazette Gesetz und Verordnungsblatt (GVBl) p. 953), Hochschule für angewandte Wissenschaften Augsburg decrees the following policy.


Hochschule für angewandte Wissenschaften Augsburg and its institutions (the "operators" or "system operators") operate an information processing infrastructure, consisting of data processing facilities (computers), communications systems (networks), and other auxiliary devices for information processing.

The information processing infrastructure is integrated into the German National Research and Education Network (Deutsches Wissenschaftsnetz) and thus forms part of the Internet.

This policy governs the conditions under which the services offered may be used.

This policy

  • is based on the responsibilities of the universities laid down in legislation and their mandate to protect academic freedom,
  • lays down rules for the orderly operation of the information processing infrastructure,
  • points out rights of third parties which must be observed (e.g. software licenses, conditions of the network operators, matters of data protection),
  • informs about the measures which may be taken in the event of  violations of this policy.
