Port Phillip Library Service Computer User Agreement

Please note that at the end of every booking the computer will delete any work that has not been saved to a USB drive, or online resource (such as your email).


All computer users must abide by this Computer User Agreement.

Port Phillip Library Service reserves the right to terminate the computer access privileges of any person contravening this Computer User Agreement.

If you are under 18 years of age, a parent or guardian must sign a separate Computer User Agreement form on your behalf – please see staff for this.

  • All internet time must be booked. (Logging into an available PC will automatically make a booking for you.)
  • Users may have up to a maximum total time of 1.5 hours a day, and may have one advance booking at a time. Bookings are held for 10 min only; this time counts towards your total quota for the day.
  • Library members are entitled to book facilities such as internet PCs and games consoles using their personal library membership. Bookings made for a library member using another member's library card are inconsistent with library policy around equitable use of resources.
  • Computer access and use is monitored by the Port Phillip Library Service to guard against inappropriate computer use or upon receipt of a complaint about possible inappropriate computer use.
  • As the City of Port Phillip is bound by Victorian privacy laws, please note that it will not use or disclose information collected about users except as permitted by law. For example, information about computer use by a user may be reported to an appropriate law enforcement agency where it is reasonably believed that an offence or other contravention of the law has been, is being or may be committed by a user. For more information on Council’s privacy policy see http://www.portphillip.vic.gov.au/privacy_policy.htm.
  • Users must observe all applicable Federal, State and Local laws, including laws applying to copyright. Library computers must not be used for the commission or attempted commission of any offence under, or contravention of, any of those laws.
  • A user may obtain information collected about him or her by making a request under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 to the Freedom of Information Officer, City of Port Phillip, Private Bag 3, St Kilda, Victoria, 3182.
  • Users must not download or display information or images that may reasonably be deemed to be offensive to others.
  • Users must not alter or damage computer hardware, software, settings or files.
  • Users must promptly vacate a terminal when asked to do so by staff or by a user whose booking follows theirs.
  • The library does not guarantee the authority or accuracy of information found on the internet.
  • Users access the internet at their own risk – the library is not responsible for the availability of material on the internet that may be offensive to users, or for users accessing those materials.
  • The library is not responsible for security on the internet – sending credit card numbers, account numbers, your name, address or other information via the internet is undertaken at the user’s risk.
  • The library is not responsible for the storage or privacy of files left on library PCs – please restart the PC if you finish your session early, as this will wipe any temporary documents & temporary internet files from your session and help protect you from identity theft. PCs should automatically restart themselves at the end of your session.

If you are over 18, or are under 18 and your parents have signed the Computer User Agreement on your behalf, click OK to indicate you have read and understood this Computer Use Agreement and agree to its requirements.
