Definition Edit

Interception of communications

occurs where a private communication between two or more parties, sent via a communications handling system, is covertly monitored in order to understand the content. It is not confined to any particular communications handling system; covert monitoring of private messages sent through telephone networks, e-mail systems, pager communications or other wireless transmissions are all examples of interception.[1]
