Other than as stated above, no attempt is made to identify users or their browsing activities except:

In the event of an investigation, where a law enforcement agency may exercise a warrant to inspect logs; or where Sirius Minerals believes it is required to collect and produce relevant electronic documentation to fulfil its obligations to third parties, including statutory organisations under local law.

Providing personal information for recruitment

You can register your interest in working for us, or our principal contractors, by emailing your CV to [email protected].
