General Notice

The University of Mary Washington assumes editorial responsibility for official University Web sites and official UMW on-line resources, which are defined as the official Web pages or on-line materials of UMW departments, divisions and other units. For these sites and resources, UMW is the content provider and not a content-neutral “Internet Service Provider,” or ISP. You may also find within the UMW domain — signified by the address “umw.edu” or within the range of Internet protocol addresses assigned to the University — Web sites or on-line materials over which the University has no editorial responsibility or control. Such sites include but are not limited to the Web pages or other on-line materials of individual faculty members or students, individual class sites and materials, and the Web pages or on-line materials of student organizations and other organizations not formally a part of the University. For these sites and materials, UMW is a content-neutral ISP.

The University provides Web pages in its official sites as a service.  It expects the persons maintaining these pages to ensure that they represent the UMW community and the Commonwealth of Virginia in a professional manner in accord with UMW’s Network and Computer Use Policy, other institutional policies, and applicable laws and regulations.  The University of Mary Washington makes no representations or warranties, express or implied, with respect to the document, or any part thereof, including any warrantees of title, noninfringement of copyright or patent rights of others, merchantability, or fitness or suitability for any purpose.

Responsibility for Pages

Deans, Directors, Departmental Heads, or respective designees of these UMW departments, centers and programs are responsible for reviewing, clearing, and maintaining information posted on official pages. The designated Departmental Web Manager is ultimately responsible for page information. Information on the UMW Web Site must be both accurate and current, and represent the University of Mary Washington and the Commonwealth of Virginia in a professional manner. UMW Departmental Web Administrators are responsible for following the UMW Computer and Network Use Policy, other institutional policies including the University Identity Standards, and applicable laws and regulations.

Current Information

We cannot and do not warrant that the information on official Web servers is absolutely current, although every effort is made to ensure that it is kept as current as possible. The individual Web pages have modification dates which can be used as guides to the timeliness of the data; however, we cannot warrant that no changes have been made to the source information since that date.

Accurate Information

We cannot and do not warrant the accuracy of these documents beyond the source documents, although we do make every attempt to work from authoritative sources.
