Whitman County Rural Library District does not use personal information provided by online customers for purposes other than those stated and does not make such information available to other organizations.

It is the policy of Whitman County Rural Library District to make Internet resources available to its customers, together with its collection of library materials, access to licensed electronic resources, and access to electronic databases, as a means of providing information in support of its mission.

The District offers materials and information in a variety of formats and media, with selection guided by its Collection Development Policy. Its goal in providing Internet resources is to enhance its collection in size and depth with information that may not be otherwise available or as up-to-date. In addition, it extends access to this information resource to all citizens.

As the District limits its selection of materials based on Collection Development Policy criteria and fiscal constraints, the District may limit customer access to Internet functions which it determines to be inconsistent with its mission and goals or consume more resources than the benefit derived in support of the mission and goals.

It is the Districtís policy to comply with the requirements of the Childrenís Internet Protection Act (CIPA) and the June 23, 2003 United States Supreme Court decision relating thereto. In doing so, the District understands that the required technology protection measures may not be fully effective in blocking intended sites and may inadvertently block unintended sites.
