Austin Free-Net (AFN) is a community-driven organization that provides and facilitates access to information. The AFN does not decide what information people can and cannot access. These decisions are made by the people who are responsible for the locations in which Austin Free-Net equipment and telecommunications services are located.
If these people or organizations decide to filter information, we will assist them in selecting and implementing a filtering software product which meets their needs. Austin Free-Net funds will not, however, be expended for filtering software. We also provide guidance for parents, educators, and others in the issues surrounding information on the Internet.
