This document is a copy of the UTORid Conditions of Use, last updated August 15, 2005, which must be accepted by everyone creating a UTORid.

UTORid Conditions of Use

Please read the following Conditions of Use for this service carefully. You will be asked to accept these conditions in order to create a UTORid.

Conditions of Use for Access Holders

All the services accessible by UTORid are to be used for academic purposes only. Other uses, including use for commercial or personal gain, for software or other copyright infringement, or for any illegal or disruptive purpose, are not authorized.

Access is issued for the exclusive use of the owner of the University of Toronto library card being used to create this UTORid and may not be given to or shared with any other person.

According to contractual arrangements, ECSMail (one of the e-mail client software programs running on PCs) can only be used with the UTORmail service. A UTORid remains active while the holder is affiliated with the University.

Appropriate Use

The University of Toronto is committed to ensuring a working and learning environment in which all persons treat others with humanity and respect. University information technology facilities include computing devices and associated peripherals, communications infrastructure and related equipment, facsimile machines, scanners, copiers, telephones, video and other multimedia devices and all forms of software. Such resources and tools are made available to employees in support of their teaching, research, and administrative activities and to students in support of their respective academic objectives and requirements. Their use is circumscribed by codes such as the Appropriate Use of Information and Communication Technology GuidelinesCode of Student Conduct, the Code of Behaviour for Academic Matters, the Ontario Human Rights Code, and the Criminal Code of Canada in concert with various rules and guidelines adopted in local units.

Everyone bears the primary responsibility for the material he or she chooses to access, send, or display. The facilities may not be used in any manner to create, send or display material which contravenes the relevant policies or statutes. Where devices, such as portable computers, are the property of the user, the appropriate use expectations still apply when such devices are used to access University information technology facilities.

Failure to adhere to these guidelines may result in the suspension of access privileges as well as other action as deemed appropriate by the user\'s division, University of Toronto Computing, and/or the University of Toronto.

Appropriate use includes, for example:

  • respect for the rights of others
  • respect for the property of others
  • consideration of other persons using shared systems, equipment, and facilities
  • confidentiality in use of passwords
  • a presumption of the right to privacy
  • use of tools for the purpose for which they are intended
  • adherence to the rules governing use of accounts, equipment, networks, or other facilities, whether the rules are established by the University of Toronto or by the organizations providing these tools to the University
  • adherence to etiquette and culture as defined in systems that you use

Inappropriate use includes, for example:

  • unauthorized access, alteration, destruction, removal and/or disclosure of data, information, equipment, software, or systems
  • deliberate over-extension of the resources of a system or interference with the processing of a system
  • disclosure of confidential passwords and/or access devices or information for accounts, equipment, electronic mail, and telephone voice mail
  • use of university facilities and resources for commercial purposes
  • propagation of hate literature
  • harassment, including sexual harassment
  • theft of resources
  • malicious or unethical use
  • use that violates provincial or federal laws
