They may have legal relationship with the school but internet service can 
be considered to be an added service that there is not available until you 
actually ask for it. 

This is like parking - there are always some rules and regulations for 
when you use school garage (usually written on the wall or available from 
parking attendent), if you dont use the garage and park your car somewhere
else (or don't have car at all), you don't have to bother with parking rules.

Same for internet access - students don't have to use school internet access, 
they can buy internet access from some other ISP or they might not have a 
computer at all. But if they use internet access, they accept rules regarding
it - i.e. AUP.
