I don't agree with that, sorry.

A few years ago one of our staff members decided his salary isn't good
enough so he started a side-line business, on our company time. He
stole some of our client's data (contact details, emails, and even
contracts) and sold it to 3rd parties. This went on for about 6 months
before we actually realized what was going on.

Needless to say, he was fined heavily and sent to jail for 3 years.
So, I don't care if you feel the PC is your's, as long as it's a
company PC, with company data and company property, we will take a
look at the data on it.

I'm not talking about your home / private PC, that's an altogether
different story.

Kind Regards
