1 Company Can Open Private Messages on Mon Sep 26, 2016 6:13 am

I work in a company where we use gmail as a means of communication for updates in our accounts and co workers.
Our Head Department asked our I.T department to open our hang outs so that they can view all our conversation.
I ask the H.R management if they can do such an act and they said yes because we are using company property.

Is that valid? They can open our email read our messages because we are using company property? Are they not violating our right of privacy?

Thank you !

If you used your company email account and company computers, then yes, the act of the IT Department in checking your accounts are valid and cannot be considered as a violation of your privacy.

Thank you for your reply.
Yes we are using company computers. We use our email address but what the company did is they connected it to our personal email address.
