Current GAP Policy
- Free Geek can provide GAP computers for public access.
- The site where the GAP computer is deployed takes responsibility for internet connection costs.
- Access to the computers should be available to the general public and must be available free of charge.
- It is acceptable for the site to collect voluntary donations to support the internet access.
Restrictions to allow access
- The site can place reasonable restrictions (such as time limits) on use of the computers so as to allow wide usage.
- Free Geek can only provide technical support for the boxes to a limited number of locations. We encourage sites that want GAP systems to find staff or patrons of that site to join the gapsters. In general, starting a new site with support requires one new volunteer from that site to joing the gapsters. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
