SaddleBrooke Community Libraries Privacy Policy

The SaddleBrooke Community Libraries Privacy Policy follows the Code of Ethics established by the American Library Association which states: “We protect each library user’s right to privacy and confidentiality with respect to information sought or received.” The SaddleBrooke Community Libraries are committed to protecting user privacy when library resources are used and personally identifiable information is collected.

The SaddleBrooke Community Libraries gather information about current and valid library users for the sole purpose of providing library services. Where it is necessary for the Libraries to identify users, it is our goal to gather only the minimum information necessary. When a library user borrows materials from the Libraries, a barcode number is linked to his/her personally identifiable information to the items borrowed. We ensure that aggregate, summary data is stripped of personally identifiable information.

The SaddleBrooke Community Libraries keep all personally identifiable information confidential. We do not engage in practices that might place personally identifiable information in or on public view. We will not share, sell, license, or disclose any personal data we collect from users to a third party except where required by law or to comply with a court order. Further, we will not use personally identifiable information to contact registered Library users for any purpose other than routine Library business such as notifying users of books being held on reserve, overdue materials, etc.

We do not ask library visitors or catalog or website users to identify themselves or reveal any personal information unless they are borrowing materials or making remote use from outside the library of those portions of the Libraries’ catalog restricted to registered borrowers. We discourage users from choosing passwords that could reveal their identity.

We permit only authorized Library volunteers with assigned confidential passwords to access personal data stored in the Libraries’ catalog system for the sole purpose of performing library work.

The courts have upheld the right to privacy based on the Bill of Rights of the US. Constitution. Confidentiality exists when a library is in possession of personally identifiable information about users and keeps that information private on their behalf.

Approved by the Library Management Committee of the SaddleBrooke Community Libraries effective September 17, 2019
