How do you customize the sign up page in Jira?

I have found this page: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRAKB/How+to+Customise+the+Login+Gadget

But we have a need to customize the sign-up page. Corporate wants us to provide a link + give a statement about privacy, and the nefarious things we're going to do with their name and e-mail address. Is there a way to customize that screen?

You can edit this file: /atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes/com/atlassian/jira/web/action/JiraWebActionSupport.properties Look for properties beginning with 'signup." and edit those. In our case, we needed to edit the signup.desc property. Then restart Jira.

NOTE: you'll probably have to do this every time you upgrade Jira.

I think some custom development would be needed to accomplish this. Are you hosting your own instance? You could edit the template directly (not suggested) or write a plugin that could hook into the desired screen.
