Does your business offer free wifi to your customers? If yes, then do you know who is using that wifi? No? Then you could be breaking the law!
Many companies are unaware that there are legal requirements for those who allow their customer to use their WiFi and that they are responsible for meeting the requirements set under the Data Protection act, European Directive for Data Retention Regulations 2009, the Code of Practice (Anti-Terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001), Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 and Digital Economy Act 2010.
When a company supplies WiFi to their customers, such as having an open network or giving out a password, these legal requirements must be complied with. A potential problem for companies is that of content filtering, which allows venues to block certain content – such as porn and illegal content. Many companies fail to track the activity of each user, which means that you could find yourself in a lot of trouble if illegal activity takes place on your WiFi and you can't provide any information to say it wasn't you.
Our system allows you to restrict the content that can be accessed through your network, logs the activity of every user and captures their email address. It also allows you to restrict the broadband usage per user or per network, so that your company will never be left with slow internet when you need it most*
With an easy to use export function you are able to export all of the email addresses from our software into an Excel spreadsheet, which you can then use to form a mailing list for your marketing!
*Depending on your Broadband/Fibre speeds.
