Can I use the consumer version of an online storage service for university business?

What is this article about?

The use of consumer versions for Box, DropBox, OneDrive, Google Drive, etc. for University business is not allowed. If individuals are interested in using one, or more, of these services for their personal use for non-university business it is strongly recommended that a non-UA email is used to register for using these consumer services.
