By Helen Cole | 23/09/14 | Wi-Fi
This infographic looks at what venues and businesses providing Guest Wi-Fi access to the public should be doing to comply with UK Wi-Fi law.
Is your guest Wi-Fi legally compliant?
People want Wi-Fi connectivity more than ever before, as it is an important part of how we communicate. Providing Wi-Fi for guests and customers has gone from a luxury to an essential and expected amenity. No matter what size or type of venue, if Wi-Fi access is provided it will need to comply with UK Wi-Fi law.
Did you know 82% of businesses believe they meet the required laws for guest Wi-Fi, but only 14% actually do.
Legally compliant guest Wi-Fi must:
- Prove that steps have been taken to prevent illegal online activity.
- Store certain user data for 12 months (EU Data Retention Regulation).
- Process personal data on individuals according to the Data Protection Act.
