Rules And Regulations

Don’t think that just because something is possible it is necessarily permitted.

talks@ee.imperial is hosted on Imperial College computers, so when you use your talks@ee.imperial account, you are subject to the rules governing users of Imperial College computers. Putting information into talks@ee.imperial is a lot like publishing web pages on a College machine.

’My journal club / seminar series is not open to the public, but talks@ee.imperial is so handy, I would like to use it to organise events – may I?’

Yes, that’s fine – any academic activities that fit, help yourself! It’s helpful if you use either the ‘abstract’ field or the ‘special message’ field on the ‘Add a new Talk’ form to tell people that it’s only open to members of your department/club/whatever. Please be aware that even if you opt out of our own search index, your listing may still be found by Google and similar sites. See our Privacy and Publicity page.

The level of service provided by talks@ee.imperial

talks@ee.imperial is not supported by the Imperial College Information & Communication Technologies (ICT) Service. It does not have any dedicated staff. Support is therefore very limited.

Telephone support

There is no telephone or face to face support provided for talks@ee.imperial

E-mail support

Messages to will be answered: usually within 48 hours, certainly within a week.

Loss of service

If the talks@ee.imperial service becomes unavailable there may be a significant (ie a week or two) delay if the appropriate staff are not available.

The consequence of this for sites that use embedded feeds from talks@ee.imperial in their pages is that no data will be shown, some browsers may indicate a javascript error on the page and some browsers may delay rendering the page until their request to talks@ee.imperial has timed out (potentially up to a minute).

Loss of data

The talks@ee.imperial database is backed up nightly.

Dealing with inappropriate data

Data may be entered into the talks@ee.imperial system by anyone who registers using a valid e-mail address. This effectively means anyone.

Inappropriate data should be reported to who will investigate and remove it as a priority. However, vacation and staff commitments may mean this takes up to a week.
