Acceptable use policy


Acceptable use policy: An Acceptable Use Policy, acceptable usage policy or fair use policy, is a set of rules applied by the owner or manager of a network, website, service, or large computer system that restrict the ways in which the network, website or system may be used. AUP documents are written for corporations, businesses, universities, schools, internet service providers, and website owners, often to reduce the potential for legal action that may be taken by a user, and often with little prospect of enforcement.
