The use of licensed resources and services provided by Royal Roads University is governed by all applicable RRU computer policies including the General Use Policy and Computer user Guidelines.

These resources and services are licensed for the academic research, learning, and teaching purposes of authorized RRU learners, faculty, staff, and affiliated researchers only. As an authorized user, you have the right to search the database, view the results, and extract (by e-mailing, printing, or downloading) a limited amount of material from the database.

Under no circumstances should licensed information or data be disseminated contrary to the terms specified within each of the databases or used for commercial purposes, nor should passwords to protected services and resources be disclosed to any non-authorized person for any purpose.

When connecting to licensed databases outside the library, RRU releases only information that authenticates users as “members of our community”. We recommend that you familiarize yourself with the privacy policies of any site you visit so that you can make an informed choice about providing any personal information. The University cannot provide assurances as to how external networks collect, use, or disclose your personal information.

Failure to conform to the appropriate use policy may result in disciplinary measures being taken. Furthermore, the University will assist authorities in enforcing copyright and other intellectual property rights, and network abuse laws.
