Church WiFi Terms of Use?

  131 views

Our church is in the process of creating a new guest WiFi network throughout the church building. When users sign-in to the WiFi network, we would like to have a Terms of Use page similar to one you would find at other public WiFi locations. I'm wondering if other churches have done similar things? Does anyone have a sample 'Terms of Use' page for guest WiFi at their church that they'd be willing to share?
