Wireless Internet Access Policy

Application: Library Staff and Patrons

Policy:

The Cape Vincent Community Library offers free wireless Internet access to users with wireless-enabled devices.  The provisions set forth in the library’s Internet Use Policy and Acceptable Use Guidelines are applicable to wireless network access.

Our network supports a wide range of devices.  Most wireless network cards will be compatible.  However, the library can make no guarantees as to compatibility of a library user’s device with the library’s network.  Library staff does not provide wireless access support and will not install or modify hardware or software.

Communication through the wireless network should not be considered secure.  Library users are responsible for selecting and installing security protection and current virus definitions on their wireless devices.  The library is not responsible for damage to hardware or software, transmission of computer viruses, loss of data or email, or any harm resulting from the use of an unsecured server.  It is strongly advised that personal financial or otherwise sensitive information not be transmitted through the wireless network.

Printing from the wireless network is not currently available.  Files can be saved to a device or emailed.

Responsibility:

Library patrons are responsible for adhering to the internet policy, and the library staff is responsible for enforcing the internet policy.
