Instructions for Use of the Tilburg University network
In these instructions for use, you will be informed about access to the computer network of Tilburg University and the use of systems made available on it.
The use of the computer and network facilities is subject to the 'Code of Conduct concerning unacceptable behavior' and is specifically regulated by the 'Tilburg University Code of Conduct for e-mail, internet and telephone facilities'. By using the facilities provided by Tilburg university by way of the UvT user name, e-mail address and password(s), computer users subject themselves to these regulations.
Access to the network and use of systems
Everyone who is registered with the Student Administration of Tilburg University as a student, has a right of access to the computer network. The UvT user name, UvT e-mail address and UvT password are necessary for the use of various on-line facilities and are provided by the Student Administration. The computer network and systems can be used at the workstations set up for that purpose at Tilburg University. For students, in the Library and in some laboratories elsewhere on campus, separate, integrated workstations have been set up. The right to use the computer network and systems will lapse as soon as a person is no longer registered with the Student Administration.
Username, email address and password
A statement will be issued personally to each new user of the computer network, listing his/her UvT user name, e-mail address and password. From that time, he/she will be their holder. The holder can use the computer network only after the UvT user name, e-mail address and password have been provided. In connection with processing logistics, access to the computer network will be opened 1 to 2 working days after issue.
Change username or email address
After issue, it will no longer be possible to change your UvT e-mail address, if the change is not due to a change to civil status (marriage or divorce) or a name change pursuant to a Royal Decree. In the aforementioned cases, the holder must address the Head of the Student Administration in writing.
From the time the UvT user name, e-mail address and password are provided, the holder will be held liable for the consequences that can arise from his/her use of the computer network and the systems made available on it. The first time the user uses the computer network and the systems made available on it will be considered as a contract by which he/she consents to be bound by the provisions of the 'Tilburg University Code of Conduct for e-mail, internet and telephone facilities'.
In spite of the Tilburg University security measures, students and staff sometimes get an e-mail with the question to pass on their username and password. Never pass these one. Tilburg University will never ask for them.
Careless use of the UvT user name, e-mail address, password and personal home pages can result in harm to the holder and/or the university. The holder is expected to deal carefully with these facilities and adhere strictly to the guidelines as described in the 'Tilburg University Code of Conduct for e-mail, internet and telephone facilities'.
The greatest possible care was observed in setting up the university computer network and the systems operating on it, so that its reliability is guaranteed. Tilburg University shall not accept liability for any problems that could arise or any loss that could nevertheless ensue from this.
