We may require users to re-validate their account if we believe they have been using an invalid email address.

City College Norwich reserves the right to close accounts if any user is seen to be using proxy IPs (Internet Protocol addresses) in order to attempt to hide the use of multiple ccn.ac.uk accounts, or if an non UK user pretends to be a UK user, or disrupts any of our services in any way.

(iii) Safety:

Any information you provide within the ccn.ac.uk communities will be visible to other ccn.ac.uk registered members. We therfore advise that you never reveal any personal information about yourself or anyone else in any ccn.ac.uk community unless you specifically want other mebers to be be able to view that information.

  • Please get a parent's or guardian's permission before taking part in ccn.ac.uk communities.

If you breach these Community Rules:

If you fail to abide by these Community Rules (and/or any variations in relevant local house rules) when taking part in ccn.ac.uk communities, you will be sent an email which informs you why your contribution has been refused or edited.
