Internal and Off Site Materials
Section IV.A.2. of the University
Web Policy specifies rules for Internal Web Materials. To be classified
as internal, pages must be restricted by password, network
or server security, or some other means from access by the
Additionally, those pages must have a known
constituency that is completely accommodated. In other words
a Web site restricted by network security to only the Appalachian
Center but designed for anyone visiting the Center to use,
is not considered internal. Furthermore, even when the constituency
is known, that constituency must still be accommodated. For
instance a site only available to employees may still be
required to be accessible if those employees include or are likely to
include someone with a claimable disability under ADA.
Internal Web sites are exempted from the standards
and obligations (including Site Reviews) spelled out for Public
Off Site Materials are Web sites not hosted
on UK servers and not using the uky.edu domain. (Please see
the domain use section of the Web Policy). The policy states
clearly that it covers all Web sites of the University of Kentucky.
A site does not cease to be a UK site merely by being hosted
off of the campus. If it is a UK site it must follow the Web
Policy. If it is not a UK site, it may not use UK marks or
materials and must state clearly that it is not affiliated
with the University.
Typically all UK sites are hosted by UK
on the uky.edu domain. Exceptions are made when resource
needs or collaborative obligations dictate otherwise. Exceptions
must be requested from the Web Advisory Committee (WAC) via Greg or Chuck.
