A. The Portable Library Management Service allows Portable Library Management users to
- store their hard copy book information

- store their book borrowers’ contact information and their borrowing records
The Portable Library Management Service stores your borrowers’ personal information. It is your responsibility to keep your phone/mobile device and access to the app secure. We therefore recommend that you do not jailbreak or root you phone/mobile devices, which is the process of removing software restrictions and limitations imposed by the official operating system of your device. It could make your phone vulnerable to malware/virus/malicious programs, compromise our phone’s security features and it could mean that the Portable Library Management App won’t work properly or at all.
We are not responsible for any personal information loss in the event of your phone/mobile device lost or stolen. It is your responsibility to ensure the phone/ mobile device has used full-device encryption and is protected by using screen lock with fingerprint. This will ensure only you can access the information stored in your device, not unauthorised third parties.
When you lend your books to your borrowers, it is your responsibility to have an agreement with them how and when they should return the books to you.
When the book you lent is due, it is your responsibilities:
