Security warning

The Service operates on an open wireless network and is therefore not inherently secure. Users must take appropriate steps to protect their own systems before connecting to it.

When you use the Service, please be aware that:

  • No network communication should be considered private or protected. Communication over this wireless network is not encrypted. Wireless networks are not unique in this respect. All users of shared networks can potentially eavesdrop on another person’s data.
  • The Museum is not responsible for the safety, security, configuration or integrity of any of your equipment or data used to access the Service.
  • Users of this Service should avoid entering any confidential information, unless they are certain that the system or website with which they are interacting provides its own security mechanism, such as https protection.
  • There are always risks present when connecting a device to the Internet. Users must ensure that they have appropriate protection against viruses, worms, Trojans and unauthorised access.
  • When connected to the Service, the Service collects device location data including the geographic location and mac address of the connected device. The Museum cannot identify individuals from the data collected, and device-specific data is not stored by the Museum.
  • By using this Service you accept and acknowledge the risks associated with connecting unprotected systems to an unsecured network.
