Acceptable Use Policy for the Jamestown College Website
The Jamestown College website (www.jc.edu) is an official electronic publication and is designed for purposes of institutional relations and efficient internal communications. The site is published by the Publications Office.
Use of the site may not violate federal or state law.
The site may not be used for commercial activities.
The site may not be used to post obscenity, sexually-explicit images or remarks that are defamatory, threatening, harassing, abusive, hateful, or intimidating.
The site may not be used to exploit a discussion or database list for a purpose outside its designated purpose.
Any reference to Jamestown College or use of Jamestown College logos must comply with the graphic standards as laid out by the Publications Office graphic standards manual.
An official page is one that communicates official information about the services, requirements, or curriculum of the College, or one of its programs or offices, and is maintained for that purpose by an academic department, admissions or administrative office. Official page content (text and images) is developed by each individual department. Once official pages are developed they are reviewed and approved by the Publications office before being linked to the Jamestown College website and are subsequently monitored for compliance.
A non-official page is any page that does not fall under the definition of an official page. Examples of non-official pages are personal homepages and the pages of student organizations. Jamestown College reserves the right to remove non-official links in which content does not comply with the General Guidelines.
Posting a non-official page involves the following steps:
- Page Creation. You can prepare the page(s) yourself, or find a Web-savvy student who is willing to help your organization.
- Get permissions from the Web Administrator in the Computer Center. He/she will create a directory for your organization on the server if needed. Faculty and Staff will place personal web pages on their W drive.
For information regarding the link to your Jamestown College website, contact the IT Center.

Jamestown College does not accept responsibility for the accuracy or reliability of any content, including that in non-official pages. Jamestown College shall not be held liable for any damages of any kind related to the use of the website.
