10.2 OverviewThe archdiocese and its locations provide clergy, staff, students, parents/guardians, parishioners, and other authorized users with access to information technology devices, services, and resources to enable them to fulfill their various responsibilities in the archdiocese. The
Archdiocesan Community Email Service (ACES), which is the archdiocesan-wide email and authentication system, facilitates broad and effective use of electronic communications in the archdiocese. All locations
must maintain at least one account in the ACES system to be able to communicate and access systems hosted by the archdiocese and various ministries.All users of archdiocesan information technology, data, and records, whether the users are lay or clergy, paid or volunteer, are obliged to use, respect, and apply technology in a safe, secure, and dignified manner.
All electronic communications are subject to various state and federal laws, as well as the applicable policies of the archdiocese and the particular location, as appropriate.To guide locations to resources and to respond to direct questions or concerns, the ACC Help Desk (firstname.lastname@example.org) is available for all locations.
