Home directory file permissions

In accordance with the Data handling and Storage policy we will shortly enable automatic enforcement of file permissions on your home directories. We expect this to take place after the next maintenance stop.

This means that you may no longer grant other users/groups read or write access to your home directory. Any sharing of data between users must be done through project or work directories.

We take this opportunity to remind you that your home directory contents are treated as private data by the Metacenter staff and will not be shared with other users, even with your supervisor or project leader without your prior, written consent. Should you be unable to give consent, requests will be handled in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.

Please remember to share necessary data as required before changing jobs, leaves of absence and so on.

Best regards,

the Metacenter security team
