Regulation of Investigatory Powers
As required by UK legislation, the RNN Group draws to the attention of all users of the Groups data and telephone networks the fact that their communications may be intercepted as permitted by the Regulation of Investigatory Powers legislation.
Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000
The legislation allows the RNN Group to intercept without consent for purposes such as recording evidence of transactions, ensuring regulatory compliance, detecting crime or unauthorised use, and ensuring the operation of their telecommunications systems. The Group does not need to gain consent before intercepting for these purposes, although we need to inform staff and students that interceptions may take place.
In the course of their normal duties some staff have the authority and are indeed required to carry out, certain monitoring activities in order to ensure the correct operation of telecommunications systems. This does not imply that all communications are monitored, just that they MAY be for the above purposes.
