Additional Terms and Conditions: Franchisee provides limited but free Internet access points or "hot spots" during most hours, except during maintenance procedures, for guest's personal use with portable computers or devices capable of receiving wireless signals. These access points allow guests to access the Internet from their web-enabled devices when within range of these access points. As with most public wireless "hot spots," Franchisee provided wireless connection is not secure. Any information being sent or received could potentially be intercepted by another wireless guest. Cautious and informed wireless guests should not transmit their credit card information, passwords or any other sensitive personal information while using any wireless "hot spot." Guests assume all associated risks and agree to hold harmless Franchisor, Franchisee and their employees for any personal information (e.g. credit card) that is compromised, and for any damage caused to guest's hardware or software due to electric surges, security issues or consequences caused by viruses or hacking. All wireless access guests should have up-to-date virus protection on their personal laptop computers or wireless devices. Due to the proliferation of Wi-Fi networks, Franchisee's guests may also be able to access other Wi-Fi networks within the restaurant that are not provided by Franchisee. Use of these non-Franchisee wireless networks within the Franchisee's facilities is also governed by these policies. Franchisee strongly recommends you do not use other Wi-Fi networks. If a guest has problems accessing the Internet over any Wi-Fi connections, Franchisee's staff cannot assist in making changes to the guest's network settings or perform any troubleshooting on the guest's computer. Guests should refer to their owner's manuals or other support services offered by their device manufacturer. All guests are expected to use Franchisee's wireless access in a legal and responsible manner, consistent with the public service and informational purposes for which it is provided. Guests should not violate federal, state or local laws, including the transmission or receiving of child pornography or harmful material, fraud, or downloading or uploading copyrighted material. Any restriction or monitoring of a minor's access to Franchisee provided wireless network is the sole responsibility of the guest. Franchisee is providing wireless connectivity in this facility as a public service and offers no guarantees or representations that any use of the wireless connection is in any way secure, or that any privacy can be protected when using this wireless connection. Use of this wireless connection is entirely at the risk of the guest, and Franchisee is not responsible for any loss of any information that may arise from the use of the wireless connection, nor is Franchisee responsible for any loss, injury, or damages resulting from the use of the wireless connection. Anyone using the wireless network provided by Franchisee is forewarned that there can be no expectation of privacy when using the wireless network.
