This responsibility applies at all times irrespective of whether at home or elsewhere. 
  • Users must report all lost or stolen devices the IT department helpdesk@stmarys.ac.uk  immediately. 
  • Users must report all damage to the IT department as soon as possible. 
  • Only licensed software from official sources may be installed.
  • Your issued device should be protected by PIN or password as appropriate and locked when not in use.
  • We recommend storing data on your St Mary's OneDrive. Data stored on the local disk is at higher risk of corruption or loss through local disk failure.
  • The user is responsible for the backup of their own personal data.
  • Users dealing with sensitive data should take additional care to protect it from unlawful loss or compromise.

  • All Mobile devices must be returned to St Mary’s University IT department if faulty, suffered accidental damage and at the end of your loan period. The device will be re-formatted before re-distribution to another St Mary’s University user.
