WiFi Policy

Last update: 23rd March 2018

Please use our WiFi to access the internet, it’s free because we love you (and Insta pics of your lunch), but to keep us both safe, we have a few terms that we ask you to acknowledge prior to surfing. We also have a few conditions of use that can be summarised as - don’t do anything illegal or dodgy using our internet service, thanks :-).

By using our guest WiFi (‘Service’), you agree that there are security, privacy and confidentiality risks inherent in accessing or transmitting information through the internet. It’s an open platform, with worldwide access and not everyone is as nice as you are.

Security issues can include, interception of transmissions, loss of data, and the introduction or viruses and other programs that can corrupt or damage your computer. We take your data security very seriously and further details of how we process your data can be found in our Privacy Policy.

Urban Guild and the venues in the Group; Urban Reef, Urban Beach, Jenkins & Sons and the Wood Oven as the owners and providers of this network are NOT liable for any interception or transmissions, computer worms or viruses, loss of data, file corruption, hacking or damage to your computer or other devices that result from the transmission or download of information or materials through the internet service provided.

Sorry about that, but accessing the internet can be risky! Virus protection software, encrypted connections and a dose of common sense are all handy to mitigate that risk.

Use of our wireless network is subject to the general restrictions outlined below. If abnormal, illegal, or unauthorised behaviour is detected, including heavy consumption of bandwidth, we can disconnect your device from the network, for ever.

The next section lists some of the illegal and unacceptable uses of the internet that we cannot allow. Accepting the terms of use means you agree not to do these. Thanks x
