TERMS OF MEMBERSHIP AGREEMENT
Terms of Membership *
Your membership allows you to borrow Spark Central materials, use Spark Central technology, or use Spark’s available services. Memberships are not transferable to any other person. Failure to follow the rules or regulations of membership or use of Spark Central’s space may result in suspension of membership. Fines and fees from overdue or damaged materials totaling $5.00 or more per responsible party (responsibility for minors residing with adult or guardian) may cause the inactivation of borrowing privileges. Privileges will resume when fines and fees have been paid.
Spark computing devices are not to be removed from Spark Central or taken into bathrooms.
Computing devices may be borrowed for up to two hours and then must be returned.
No illegal conduct (harassment, libeling or slandering, destruction or damage, disruption or unauthorized monitoring or interference, unauthorized copying of copyrighted material, or viewing or downloading of pornography) is allowed on Spark Central computers or devices.
Spark Central staff and volunteers have the authority and duty to enforce equitable and fair access to all computing facilities at Spark.
Spark Central staff and volunteers are generally trained computer instructors. Patrons are responsible for their own use of public access computers.
Parents are responsible for monitoring and guiding use of station computers for their children.
Patrons are only authorized to access the “Spark Central” patron login and are prohibited from downloading software or other programs onto our computers. Flash drives are available.
Each day, printing your first five black-and-white pages are free, and there are charges for additional pages or color pages. See sign at help desk for rates.
Spark Central holds parents / guardians, or care providers responsible for the safety and security of their children while visiting. Neither Spark Central nor the programming offered by Spark Central for children is intended to take the place of care and supervision by a parent or caregiver. Spark Central allows children over the age of 10 to be in the center without parent supervision. We ask that children 10 years or younger be accompanied by a parent or caregiver over the age of 14. If an unaccompanied child is in need of assistance that the Spark Central staff and volunteers do not or cannot provide, is disruptive to other patrons, or is at-risk, a staff member will first contact the child’s parents. If the staff member cannot reach the child’s parents they will then contact the necessary authorities.
Spark Central may occasionally take photos of adult or youth members listed on this form, or work they share at Spark Central, in our publications, social media, and/or grant applications. By signing, you consent to the reproduction and use, royalty-free, of motion picture films, videotapes, recorded sounds, and still photographs of yourself or other adults and youth listed on this form by Spark Central for purposes including, but not limited to, promotional materials, display, advertising, social media, and exhibits. By signing this form, you release Spark Central, its clients, subcontractors, owners and designees from liability for any violation of any personal or proprietary right you may have in connection with such reproduction and use.
[ ] Opt Out: Note that if you opt-out of our media release, please inform our staff to avoid you or your children if they are taking pictures or video in the space.
