This article outlines an Acceptable Use Policy and Conditions of Use for a federated collaborative community. This AUP is drafted by the AAF for its collaborative communities. This baseline may be augmented with eInfrastucture-specific requirements and community specific T&Cs as needed.

This AUP is based on WISE SCI Baseline AUP v1.3 which is the work of the Members of the WISE Community SCI Working Group and Life Science Login AUP (CC-BY-NC-SA 4.0).
