Wireless Network Policy

Kinderhook Memorial Library provides free broadband wireless Internet access twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week to individuals with laptop computers. Users are expected to use the wireless network in a legal and responsible manner. Violation of federal, New York State or local laws, including but not limited to the transmission of pornography or harmful material, fraud, hacking, spamming, and illegal downloading of copyrighted material is prohibited.
Wireless access at the Kinderhook Memorial Library is not filtered. However, by choosing to use this free wireless service you agree to abide by the Kinderhook Memorial Library Internet Policy.
As with most public wireless networks, the connection is not secure. Any information being sent or received could be intercepted. Wireless users who choose to transmit their credit card numbers, passwords or other sensitive personal information while using the Kinderhook Memorial Library wireless network do so at their own risk.
The Kinderhook Memorial Library will not be responsible for any information that is compromised, or for any damage caused to an individual’s hardware or software due to electric surges, security issues, viruses, hacking, spamming, or other causes. The Kinderhook Memorial Library assumes no responsibility for the safety of equipment or for computer or other wireless device configurations, security, or data files resulting from connection to the Kinderhook Memorial Library wireless network.
Library staff cannot assist in making changes to user’s network settings or perform any troubleshooting on the user’s own computer. Please refer to your owner’s manual or technical support provided by the manufacturer. Since computer equipment is subject to repair and “downtime” the Library does not guarantee that the network will always be available. The Library also reserves the right to curtail or discontinue wireless service at any time.
Any use of the Kinderhook Memorial Library wireless network that exerts an exorbitant strain on the library’s network and compromises patron and staff use is not allowed.

The library printer is not available via the wireless network.
