Software Support Restrictions

The CSG typically does not purchase application software or software that most of the users in Mathematical Sciences will not use. The CSG also does not purchase support contracts for software. The purchaser of the software is responsible for buying any necessary support contracts.

Before deciding to install any software, the CSG will determine whether the software may pose a threat to the security of Mathematical Science's computing facilities. If the CSG decides that the software does pose a risk, the CSG may decide not to install it, or may install it in a manner that is more secure but that reduces the software's functionality.

The CSG will support software only if it has sole ownership of the software's files and directories. The CSG cannot be responsible for the state of software for which it does not have sole and complete control.
