Suspension and termination of the service

Under normal circumstances, the Site is accessible 24 hours a day every day of the week, except during service interruptions due to scheduled maintenance or unscheduled emergency maintenance or due to the occurrence of a force majeure event.

In these cases, the instructor will receive an email notice one month before the removal of the course. During this period of time, the instructor can ask for a copy of course material by sending a request via email to beep.metid@polimi.it. After this period material will not be recoverable any longer.
