Acceptable Use Policy

An Acceptable Use Policy is a set of rules written and enforced by the owner and/or director of a network, website, or other large computer system that guide the method in which the network, website, etc. may be used. An AUP is written in order to reduce the potential for system malfunction, misuse, and best practices. 

Users of the St. Joseph Parish network are bound by two official documents: the Acceptable Use Computing Policy of the Diocese of Harrisburg and the St. Joseph Parish Information Technology Acceptable Use Policy. Both of these documents can be found here. Employees and those who register for the Youth Protection Program must sign the Diocesan Acceptable Use Computing Policy. Parish network users must sign both the Diocesan Acceptable Use Computing Policy as well as the St. Joseph Parish Information Technology Acceptable Use Policy. Those who follow the St. Joseph Parish Information Technology Acceptable Use Policy are also in compliance with the Diocesan Acceptable Use Computing Policy.

Questions concerning the St. Joseph Parish Information Technology Acceptable Use Policy should be directed to the Department of Information Technology of St. Joseph Parish.
