Rules & Conditions

To publish any material on this site, each user must agree to the following:


  1. Individuals must possess the technical capability to produce and maintain their own web pages. The Information and Communications Technology division (ICT), the Help Desk and the Web Communications team do not provide support for creating, loading or maintaining personal web pages.
  2. Use of ANY official Eastern Michigan University logos, seal or identity standards on any personal web pages is expressly prohibited by University publication guidelines. ALL pages on this server are prohibited from using any EMU identifiers. See EMU Web Standards Guide: Using Logos and Wordmarks for details.
  3. Web pages and related content must comply with all laws governing copyrights, intellectual property, libel and privacy. Any violations of these laws and regulations, and the consequences arising from such violations, are entirely the responsibility of the individual who created the web page/site. Additionally, violations of applicable laws and regulations will result in disciplinary action by Eastern Michigan University, including removal of web pages and privileges on EMU servers.
  4. Individual web pages must meet all other conditions of acceptable use for computing facilities included in the EMU Acceptable Use of Information Technology guidelines and must be in compliance with the University Statement on the Appropriate Use of Communications Media.

  6. Commercial activity of any kind, including advertising or promotion of fee-based services, is strictly prohibited on this server.
  7. Individuals should be aware that pages on this public web server are subject to powerful World Wide Web search engines. Colleagues, prospective employers and the general public can find any page or information on your site without your knowledge, without having provided the Uniform Resource Locator (URL), and without navigating the links you have created.

Content that is deemed private, confidential or that is otherwise sensitive should not be uploaded to this server.
  11. Account holders on this system understand and acknowlege that their pages will exist only as long as they have access to a University supplied email account.
