Here are some regulations for hotspot implementations in China that you have to watch out for if you want to deploy a captive portal in China.
In 2015 the Chinese government issued a mandate that for compliance, all Public Guest WiFi must deploy a Chinese Government Certified Security Audit Gateway at each premise.
In addition, in July 2016, the government passed a data localization mandate (part of the National Network Security Law), to ensure all personal data collected in China are stored locally in China.
As such, to deploy Chinese government compliance guest Wi-Fi, all the personal data collected for public WiFi must be collected using a Chinese Government certified Gateway; currently, only a hand full of local vendors are certified to produce.

Cloudi-Fi also signed a strategic business partnership with CBCCom ISP in Dec 2017 to provide a complete solution with connectivity, local box, and cloud services.
