    a set of rules applied by the owner/manager of a network, website or large computer system that restrict the ways in which the network site or system may be used.
    AUP documents are written for corporations,[1] businesses, universities,[2] schools,[3] internet service providers,[4] and website owners[5] often to reduce the potential for legal action that may be taken by a user, and often with little prospect of enforcement.
