Setup a "Terms of Use" page for users when browsing internet

Dear mate,
is it possible to configure checkpoint to show/redirect a "Terms of Use" page to end users at the start of everyday (and timeout 24 hours) when user start browsing internet at office?

I am thinking about UserCheck, but UserCheck is designed to show when access specified web category/ application/ downloading virus.

What I want to do is showing a Terms of Uses Page to end user, require them to click "Agree/ Confirm" before they are access the internet.

Thank you!!

You are thinking in the right direction and no it was not only designed for the Block message.

The Action setting you are looking for is called Ask. Here you can show a specific piece of text (your policy) and then require them to click ok to be able to continue.

Hi Maarten,

Thank you for the insight.
To achieve my goal. I am thinking of setup an access control policy layer with 1 rule only matching web browsing with  the ask action.

Like this.

I am thinking of configuration like this.
But does it have any "smarter" way?

Personally I would not do it this way, I would use an inline layer where you make sure to set the different rules with the block and allow rules, replacing specific allow rules with the ask action.

That way you can exclude some networks/usergroups from this, it also allows you to prevent internal aaplications to be hit by the rule.

In other words you have more control over when and who will get the policy statement.

I think this is actually a great way to accomplish this! Its a great use case for policy layers and ensures the TOS rule won't get missed. The only thing I'd ask is whether you truly want this to be an *ANY* / *ANY* rule? You might find some unintended consequences and may want to consider tightening the Source to a group of LANs where your users reside. You might also want to consider making the Destination specific to the Internet. Otherwise, your users could get UserCheck pages while accessing Internal web services. (Unless you want that)

I may actually steal this idea Smiley Happy

That is also why I rpoposed to only do it inside the layer, as this way you also get the message before a block page.

I wasn't thinking of it that way, but I agree!

If you have the Captive Portal function of Identity Awareness enabled, you can use "unregistered guest access" with a customized page that forces the user to accept Terms of Service and/or enter other voluntary information such as name and contact info as described here:
