Social Networking Policy
When information of concern from Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter or other sources comes to the attention of a University official, it may be acted upon in accordance with University policy. Students are urged not to post private or questionable information about themselves or others on web social networking sites. It is advisable to delete any private or questionable information that has already been posted.
Students using social networking sites should carefully read the terms and conditions set forth by these services. Users should be aware that they are solely responsible for the content of their sites and that neither the networking service nor Viterbo University is responsible for the information that students place on the site. As is indicated in the terms and conditions of the networking services, users should refrain from posting material that may be seen as criminal; harassing; racially, sexually, ethnically or religiously objectionable; defamatory; obscene; invasive of another’s privacy; or infringing of copyright.
Unwanted, repeated, harassing, denigrating, lewd, or obscene communications using devices, including electronic or digital devices, are in violation of the Student Code of Conduct. In addition to University policy, the posting of inappropriate material may subject students to criminal and civil penalties.
