Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Encrypt the data you are sending to avoid this, otherwise yes they could.

It’s unlikely they would as it breaches several laws but its very possible.
Look into IPSEC between your DC’s

    As I understand it, every line from a provider has to go through at least some of their equipment in order to be routed and function at all. An ISP would therefore have the capability to 'examine' their lines if they wanted to.
