- Be cautious when filling in personal information (name, Social Security Number, credit card info, etc.) on websites. Your identity can be easily stolen over the Internet if the website does not have built-in security for you. Always check for the padlock symbol at the bottom of your browser that indicates secure sites.
- Do not download files from the Internet unless you are certain that the files are from a safe source.
- Do not open email attachments from email addresses that you do not know. Even if you do know them, make sure the attachment is safe before opening it.
- Install virus protection software and keep it up to date. Insure that your device has the latest security updates from the vendor (i.e. Microsoft)
Your use of the Medical Center Hospital wireless Internet connection is at your own risk. As with most public wireless hot spots, the hospital’s wireless connection is not secure. There can be non-trustworthy third parties between the user and anybody with whom the user communicates. Any information being sent or received could potentially be intercepted by another wireless user. Cautious and informed wireless users should not transmit their credit card information, passwords and any other sensitive personal information while using any wireless “hot spot.”
MCH assumes no responsibility, and shall not be liable for any loss of data to, damages to, or viruses that may infect your computer equipment or other property on account of your access to, use of, or browsing in any website, or your downloading of any materials from websites.
Any restriction or monitoring of a minor’s access to the hospital’s wireless network is the sole responsibility of the parent or guardian.
MCH can not guarantee that your hardware will work with the hospital’s wireless connection.
If you have problems accessing the Internet over the Wi-Fi connection, staff cannot assist in making changes to the user’s network settings or perform any troubleshooting on your device. You should refer to owners’ manual for your device or other support services offered by your device manufacturer.
