WiFi Use Policy
Patrons must accept the Library’s basic Internet policy and rules for access to the Internet. Paper copies of this policy are available at the Reference desk.
I understand that the Library’s wireless network is an “open network” which means that information transmitted on this network is unencrypted and unsecured. There is: No software filtering, No blocking of ports, No protection against malware: malicious software designed to cause damage to a single computer, server, or computer network. The Library will not be held responsible for any damages, direct or indirect, to your laptop/notebook, PDA or other wireless device, occurring as a result of the use of our electronic resources. I further understand that connecting to the Library’s wireless network is at my own risk and I agree that the Library shall not be held liable for any damages, direct or indirect, occurring as a result of the use of the Library’s electronic resources. I understand that Library staff does not provide any technical assistance for wireless connectivity and that I am solely responsible for connecting and configuring my own equipment. I agree that I will not use Library computer resources unlawfully. This includes, but is not limited to, using Library resources to violate copyright agreements, harass others through the Internet, or exploit security holes in computers or networks. I agree not to tamper with Library systems or settings in any way, nor will I save or download programs or files to the network. I understand that I will be using my electronic equipment in a public area and that privacy cannot be guaranteed. I agree not to view sexually graphic and/or explicit material, as this is prohibited on Library computers. I agree that if I do not comply with these rules, I will be held liable for any damage my actions may cause and understand that my privilege to use the Library’s wireless computer resources may be revoked.
