Legal responsibilities

The University has legal responsibilities for any materials placed on its web servers including compliance with the requirements of the Australian Broadcasting Authority. All of the information contained within this site is based on the CSU Web Policy and the CSU Web Style Guide. You must also comply with the University's Policy for the Use of University Computing and Communication Facilities.

Official vs Personal Publishing

The CSU web site is designed as the official web publishing area for the University. Its role is to accommodate information that has the official approval of the University and is subject to the University’s quality assurance procedures and practices. This information is distinguished by pages that carry the University templated design, header and footer.

Each section of the official CSU web site is “owned” by an organisational unit. The responsibility for that area of the site rests with the Head of School, Section or Division. Publishing access rights are often assigned to designated members of staff. However, quality assurance of the sections still resides with the Head of School, Section or Division.

Staff and students of the University are able to publish their own personal homepage to accommodate materials that are strictly personal and which are not subject to the University’s quality assurances procedures and practices. While these personal homepages may reside on CSU servers, they do not form part of the official CSU web site. This can be seen by the fact that they do not carry the official University template or crest. However, they do reside on University infrastructure and as a consequence the University is required to accept content service provider obligations in respect of these materials. This means that the University has legal responsibilities for these materials including compliance with the requirements of the Australian Broadcasting Authority. Further information is available at the CSU Web Policy. The policy also details the requirement of users to comply with the University's Policy for the use of University Computing and Communication Facilities.
