General Data Protection Regulation


It is the policy of the Mattituck-Laurel Library to respect the privacy of all our users, in accordance with federal and state laws and professional standards. Specifically, the Mattituck-Laurel Library supports and complies with New York State Law (Laws of 1988, Chap. 112, New York Civil Practice Law & Rules § 4509) and the Code of Ethics of the American Library Association and, when applicable, the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). The GDPR protects all European Union (“EU”) citizens from privacy and data breaches by allowing citizens to maintain control of the personal data kept and processed by organizations, including the Mattituck-Laurel Library. The GDPR also protects the personal data of individuals, regardless of citizenry, in the EU. Mattituck-Laurel Library adheres to these regulations and standards with respect to the confidentiality of library records, including, but not limited to, the circulation of library materials, interlibrary loan transactions, reference queries, and course reserve requests.


All library records relating to an individual patron’s use of the library and its resources are considered confidential. Those records may be consulted and used by authorized library staff in the course of carrying out library operations, but they will not be disclosed to others except upon the request or consent of the library user, or pursuant to subpoena, court order, or other legal requirements. If Mattituck-Laurel Library receives a law enforcement request for patron records, the Library will forward that request to legal counsel.
