The Polaris default for this is:
The feature you have selected is associated with personal data in your patron account.  Such data may be accessed by law enforcement personnel without your consent.  Do you wish to continue?

We decided that was a bit alarmist, and it now says:
Privacy Policy: Eugene Public Library will not release any records related to your Library card account except if required by court order. If you would like additional information, call the Library at 541-682-5450.

Subject: [Libs-Or] Privacy statement about checkout histories

Hi everyone,

Do any of you have a good privacy statement that you display to patrons when they're given the option to record their checkout history? Sage is upgrading to the new version of Evergreen, which includes the ability for patrons to store their checkout and holds histories. We'd like to give some sort of brief privacy note next to the box enabling the option, something like, "Hey, just so you know, what you're reading, viewing and listening to is being recorded now," only perhaps a tad bit more formal. Suggestions are welcomed!
