Library computers and wifi terms and conditions

  • Take care of your own personal data and log off at the end of your session
  • You may lock the PC mid-session by clicking the Pause session button, if you need to leave the PC temporarily for any reason. Your session will time out if you are away for longer than 10 minutes.
  • Internet access is filtered in the library. Occasionally undesirable material may appear, or sites of interest may be blocked.
  • It is your responsibility to familiarise yourself with third party providers on the internet and read their terms and conditions. The internet is not a secure medium. Check security settings when you share personal or confidential information with third parties.
  • Be aware that information on the internet may not be reliable or accurate
  • We welcome you to watch live television and catch-up programmes as we have provided a TV licence that covers viewing for customers
  • Anything saved to the PC hard drive will not be saved between sessions. If you want to keep any work, save it to a memory stick, other external storage device or cloud storage before the session ends. Remember to take any memory sticks or other digital storage devices away with you after your session. Any devices left behind will be treated as lost property and will be kept for 14 days. Any devices not claimed in that time will be securely disposed of.
