Privacy and Examination of Computer Accounts

All information stored on the academic computer systems at Kalamazoo College is considered private unless purposely made available to the public by the owner.

Information Services will access private files without the owner's consent under two conditions:

  • to fulfill a proper legal request
  • if necessary to investigate or resolve a case of suspected system security breaches or policy violations.

 This will be carried out by the Associate Provost for Information Services, or his designated backup.

A specific request for help in solving a system problem is implicit consent to view the files necessary to resolve the problem.

Users should be aware that data files, including system backups, may be subpoenaed in a court case.
