Technology -Guest Internet Usage Policy
Humphreys County School System offers wireless Internet access in the form of a Guest WI-FI network (“HCSS_EDU_GUEST”) in and on the grounds of the School buildings. GUEST WI-FI is provided as a public service, free of charge, for the convenience of visitors with HUMPHREYS COUNTY SCHOOL SYSTEM and subject to the terms and conditions below.
The GUEST WI-FI is content filtered and certain Internet site categories may be blocked (ex: pornography & hacking). Category filtering may not fully be accurate as it updates daily. HUMPHREYS COUNTY SCHOOL SYSTEM does not guarantee minimum Internet connection speeds and all network traffic is monitored and logged.
HUMPHREYS COUNTY SCHOOL SYSTEM cannot be held responsible for insuring the privacy of any confidential or financial information patrons may send over the GUEST WI-FI. Virus and security protection is the end user’s responsibility. Information passing through the GUEST WI-FI network is not encrypted, nor secured, and could be monitored, captured, or altered by others. HUMPHREYS COUNTY SCHOOL SYSTEM disclaims any liability for unauthorized security breaches and encourages all users to adhere to good security practices.
HUMPHREYS COUNTY SCHOOL SYSTEM staff is not permitted to support user connectivity issues or user computer issues of any type. HUMPHREYS COUNTY SCHOOL SYSTEM assume no responsibility for damage, theft, or loss of user’s equipment, software, data files or other personal property brought into or used on the GUEST WI-FI network.
If HUMPHREYS COUNTY SCHOOL SYSTEM staff is contacted for assistance they will only verify the current operational state of the GUEST WI-FI system. There is no guarantee of access to the GUEST WI-FI at any specific time, at a specific speed, location or with any specific equipment. Service disruptions may occur, and some equipment may be incompatible. HUMPHREYS COUNTY SCHOOL SYSTEM will treat repair issues related to the GUEST WIFI as a lower priority than work orders and issues directly affecting HUMPHREYS COUNTY SCHOOL SYSTEM departments, boards and committees.
At its sole discretion, HUMPHREYS COUNTY SCHOOL SYSTEM may terminate access to GUEST WI-FI at anytime, without prior notice.
In using GUEST WI-FI, I agree to and hereby release, indemnify and hold harmless, HUMPHREYS COUNTY SCHOOL SYSTEM, its employees, and any affiliate, from any damage that may result in my use of GUEST WI-FI.
While using GUEST WI-FI, I acknowledge that I am subject to, and agree to abide by all laws and rules and regulations of the HUMPHREYS COUNTY SCHOOL SYSTEM, the State of Tennessee, and the Federal Government that are applicable to Internet use.
