[Micronet] Email accounts and Minors

Beth Muramoto
We have a summer program called ATDP which conducts classes for kids of various ages. Some of the classes they take are technology-based so a question came up that I didn't have an answer to or know where to forward it. I don't know if it's a security issue or not or a privacy issue or not etc.

Here is the query. If there is a proper place to ask this question, please let me know and as always, thanks for any guidance you can provide.

My question for you is about supervisor access to email. I presume that our UC email accounts and everything therein are property of UC. How does that oversight work in practice? Right now, to comply with the campus policy on minors, the plan is to have a supervisor collect login credentials so they can oversee the email accounts. Are there rules about how the supervisor should store those usernames and passwords? It seems like the sort of thing for which there would be rules.

 Thanks again.

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities have crept in – forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”

This is the essence of forgiveness. You can't change what happened but you can make sure it doesn't have the power to prevent you from being happy tomorrow.
