Wireless Internet Access
The Orion Township Public Library provides wireless internet access to our patrons on their laptops or other wireless-enabled mobile devices for web and email access. As with most public wireless “hot spots”, the library’s wireless connection is not secure. Cautious and informed wireless users should choose not to transmit their credit card information, passwords and other sensitive personal information while using any wireless “hot spot.”
The library will not be responsible for any information (i.e. credit card) that is compromised, or for any damage caused to your hardware or software due to power surges, security issues or consequences caused by viruses or hacking. All wireless access users should have up-to-date virus protection on their laptop computers or wireless devices. Anti-virus and security protection are the responsibility of the patron.
Laptop and mobile device users must be considerate of patrons nearby and refrain from excessive noise including the playing of music or movies without the use of headphones.
The library is not responsible for laptops or mobile devices left unattended.
