RCS Account Policies
I acknowledge personal responsibility for my account credentials and understand that I am responsible for their security. I will protect my account from misuse. I will not share my account or its credentials with anyone for any reason. I hereby attest that I have read, understand, and agree to be bound by the rules, policies, and procedures regarding my access to RCS resources. I agree to report to RCS any problems I encounter while using RCS systems, or any misuse of accounts or passwords by other persons which may occur and come to my knowledge. I understand that RCS will investigate each incident.
Restrictions and Auditing
I will not execute, copy or store copyrighted or proprietary software or information on RCS systems without proper authorization. I understand that I am not allowed to process sensitive or classified information on RCS resources. I understand that as a user of RCS systems, my activities are audited and that misuse of RCS resources may result in disciplinary action and/or revocation of current, or denial of future computing privileges.
I agree to include the acknowledgement found at /services/research-computing-systems in any publications that result from research supported by this grant. I will submit a copy of each of these publications to RCS (the copies can be included with the annual report).
I understand that RCS makes a reasonable attempt to ensure the availability and integrity of my data and software through regular on-site backups of my home directory. RCS does not maintain off-site backups of user data and I agree to assume all responsibility for the risk of loss of my data and software--regardless of the cause of that loss. I understand that RCS makes a reasonable attempt to ensure the availability of its HPC resources and that periodically, any or all of these systems may go down for scheduled or unscheduled maintenance. I agree that it is my responsibility to ensure the recoverability of my data, wherever feasible, should any of my jobs be unexpectedly restarted or lost due to a downtime.
By submitting this form, you agree to the above terms and conditions.
