All Internet access is filtered through the Council filtering software. This software attempts to filter out viruses and any Web site that may cause offence - access is prevented to sites on the grounds of sexual, racist, defamatory content, etc.
However, this software cannot be 100% effective and material may get through that you may find distasteful, also some perfectly innocuous sites may be blocked We log Internet usage to help ensure that everyone is using it safely and legitimately.
