The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect on the 25th May 2018.
If you provide free Wi-Fi to your customers you will have to ask for consent to collect and store their personal data before they can use the service. You could be fined up to 5% of your turnover if you don’t!
What does this mean?
The terms & conditions for your Wi-Fi service need to be very clear on what data you are collecting, the reasons why, your intended usage of such data and the ability for the public to opt-in for any marketing, as well as providing them clear instructions on how they can opt-out at any time.
