USF Blogs Guidelines
Practices Regarding Use, Storage, Posting, and Comments
- You must not publish content that is obscene, defamatory, threatening, confidential, proprietary, infringing of intellectual property rights, invasive of privacy, or otherwise illegal. USF reserves the right to remove at any time, at its sole discretion, any content that it deems in violation of University, local, state, or federal laws, rules, or regulations. Please be clear that you are sharing your views as an individual and that you are not representing the position of the University of San Francisco.
- If you choose to permit reader comments, you are responsible for moderating comments to ensure they are relevant to the blog’s content. All blogs should contain a notice stating that content that is irrelevant to the blog’s topic, obscene, defamatory, threatening, confidential, proprietary, infringing of intellectual property rights, invasive of privacy, or otherwise illegal is prohibited and that the blog owner and the University reserves the right to remove any such content. Blog users must be put on notice that the IP address of all comments is recorded to aid in enforcing the conditions stated above. While this information will not be disclosed to any third party without the user’s consent, the webmaster, administrator, moderators, and University cannot be held responsible for any hacking attempt that may lead to a breach of data security.
- You are not permitted to sell or advertise for non-University entities.
- The Blog Service may not be used to create pages for personal gain.
- Information posted on the blog must not infringe upon the intellectual property rights of others.
