In article <VI1PR01MB70538541D7ADE18A555B05D6C7869@VI1PR01MB7053.eurprd01.prod.exchangelabs.com> you write:

That is OK but I would also want to point out that the data are
aggregated and contain no individual e-mail addresses of senders or
recipients, nor IP addresses of individuals nor any contents of
messages, so it is unlikely that they contain any PII.

I have to say it seems weird to me that it's OK to send whatever to external places but not to 
your own staff.

R's,
