Acceptable Use Policy

The principles guiding the appropriate use of a public computer network by a private individual. It may also apply to the use of a computer provided to an individual by a company or agency for work use. The acceptable use policy outlines the types of websites a user may or may not visit and/or the kinds of work that are prohibited. For example, an acceptable use policy at a company may ban the use of a social networking website like Facebook. More commonly, AUPs ban the viewing of pornography or websites likely to contain viruses.
