Account Life Cycle

New Account:

Request the account via the CGD/IS web form. All accounts must be sponsored by an employee of (i.e., recieves a paycheck from) NCAR/CGD. Users are to be collaborating with NCAR/CGD staff for research purposes. The sponsor has the responsibility i to ensure that NCAR/CGD systems are not used for unrelated research or personal use.

Disabled:

Accounts will be disabled for one of the following reasons:

  • 6 months of inactivity

  • Invalid user contact information

  • Invalid sponsor access

  • Security problems (stolen account, weak password, etc).

Sponsors and internal employees will be notified of account disabling. Sponsors are responsible for notifying users at other institutes.

Removed:

Accounts will be removed after 6 months of being disabled. This includes:

  • Tape archive of user data from CGD systems .

  • Removal of user files from CGD systems. Note that data located on other Division computer systems is not the responsibility of CGD/IS and that each Division has its own procedure for user data archival. In short, don't be surprised if it's just deleted.

  • Removal of the username/password from all CGD systems.

  • Notification to other Divisions for similar activity.

Sponsors will be notified of account disabling. Sponsors are responsible for notifying users at other institutes.
