Update the MUA (#473)

The CSC's Executive updated the Machine Usage Agreement on 10 July 2022.

The updates are as follows:
- A note was added that CSC Cloud resources fall under the same policies as the rest of CSC's machines and network.
- A note was added that the Systems Committee may delete CSC Cloud resources when their CSC account expires.
- A directive was added that all club reps read the Wiki page on Club Hosting when they become a club rep and then at least once a term for notices on that page.
- MFCF was replaced with CSCF (when the previous 2007 version was published, CSC had relations with MFCF instead of CSCF, which may not even have existed at the time. CSC now has relations with CSCF more than MFCF.)
- Various grammatical errors were corrected.

Note: Please do not merge this PR until 18 July 2022, to allow members time to receive the new version.
