How is personal information collected?

St Barbara may monitor emails sent to and from its workforce, which may contain personal information relating to third parties. The information contained in such emails may be used for business-related purposes, for example when investigating incidents within St Barbara. Although St Barbara endeavours not to review the contents of personal emails, there may be occasions where this is necessary, for example. to investigate a breach of security within St Barbara, or in the context of legal proceedings.
