Global SchoolNet Acceptable Use Guidelines for Good Global Citizens


The use of the Internet as part of an educational program is a privilege, not a right, and inappropriate or unauthorized use or safety violations could result in revocation or suspension of that privilege. It is highly recommended that each student who has access the Internet be provided acceptable use training and shall have an acceptable use form, signed by a parent or legal guardian, on file.

In addition, if you submit any content to online Global SchoolNet projects, you must agree that information: 

  • shall not contain profanity, obscenity, or other language or content that may offensive to other users
  • shall not make personal attacks on other people, organizations, religions, or ethnicities
  • hall not be false, inaccurate, fraudulent or misleading
  • shall not harass another person (i.e., using the Internet in a manner that bothers or annoys that person)
  • shall not forward personal communications or personal contact information without the author’s prior consent
  • shall not infringe upon any copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret, or other proprietary rights or rights of publicity or privacy
  • shall not violate any law, statute, ordinance, or regulation
  • shall not contain any viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time bombs, cancelbots, or other computer-programming routines that are intended to damage, detrimentally interfere with, surreptitiously intercept, or expropriate any system, data, or personal information

Use for product advertisement or political lobbying is also prohibited. Illegal activities and privacy and safety violations of the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) are strictly prohibited.

Unacceptable behavior will not be permitted. Global SchoolNet reserves the right to review materials submitted for to Global SchoolNet projects and to remove any materials in its sole discretion. Global SchoolNet reserves the right to terminate your access to any or all of the services at any time, without notice, for any reason whatsoever.
