By connecting to KDMC’s wireless internet service, you are agreeing to these terms and related policies.
King’s Daughters Medical Center (KDMC) free Wi-Fi service Terms and Conditions:
KDMC provides limited but free internet access points, or “hot spots,” during most hours, except during maintenance procedures, for patients’ and their guests’ personal use with portable computers or other devices capable of receiving wireless signals. These access points allow patients and their guests to access the internet from their web-enabled devices when within range of these access points.
As with most public wireless hot spots, KDMC’s wireless connection is not secure. 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.
Users assume all associated risks and agree to hold harmless KDMC and its employees for any personal information (e.g., credit card information) that is compromised, or for any damage caused to users’ hardware or software due to electric surges, security issues, or consequences caused by viruses or hacking. All wireless access users should have up-to-date virus protection on their personal laptop computers or wireless devices. KDMC provides access to web-based email only. For Microsoft Outlook or other email services, the users must connect with their own internet service provider (ISP).
Due to the proliferation of Wi-Fi networks, KDMC Wi-Fi users may also be able to access other Wi-Fi networks within KDMC that are not provided by KDMC. Use of these non-KDMC wireless networks within the KDMC facilities is also governed by KDMC policies. KDMC strongly recommends that you do not use other Wi-Fi networks.
If a user has problems accessing the Internet over these connections, KDMC staff cannot assist in making changes to the user’s network settings or perform any troubleshooting on the user’s computer. Users should refer to their owner's manuals or other support services offered by their device manufacturer.
All users are expected to use KDMC’s wireless access in a legal and responsible manner, consistent with the public service and informational purposes for which it is provided. Users should not violate federal, Mississippi, or local laws, including those prohibiting the transmission or receiving of child pornography or harmful material, fraud, or the downloading of copyrighted material.
Any restriction or monitoring of a minor’s access to KDMC’s wireless network is the sole responsibility of the patient or guest.
PLEASE NOTE: Printing access is not available via the wireless connection. Printers are not available via the wireless connection at this time. If users need to print, they should save their work to a portable storage device (e.g., a USB drive) or wait to print a document on a home printer.
