Security on Internet Connect

In order to prevent unauthorised access, Trinity’s username and password is in use and to access this service you must login. Secondly, you must accept the Terms and Conditions of the service. All relevant Trinity policies still apply to staff using Internet Connect with their personal devices, for example the Network Code of Conduct. We recommend that the device must lock itself with a password or PIN if it’s idle for five minutes.  It is your responsibility to remember this passcode/password/PIN as if you forget it you may have to do a restore from backup and so may lose data.

Devices and Operating Systems not on the list of supported devices won’t be able to use Internet Connect. Trinity reserves the right to disconnect personal devices on Internet Connect without notification, if for example the device is lost, a staff member terminates his or her employment, a data or policy breach is detected or a virus or similar threat to the security of Trinity’s data and infrastructure is detected. You must not attempt to circumvent the device manufacturer’s security mechanisms in any way, for example ‘jailbreak’ the device.

Trinity will not monitor the content of your personal devices, however reserves the right to monitor and log data traffic transferred between your device and Trinity IT systems. In exceptional circumstances, for instance where the only copy of a University document resides on a personal device, or where the University requires access in order to comply with its legal obligations (e.g. Data Protection or Freedom of Information legislation, or where obliged to do so by a Court of law or other law enforcement authority) Trinity will require access to the Trinity data and information stored on your personal device. Under these circumstances all reasonable efforts will be made to ensure that Trinity does not access your private information.
