Germany and Romania in Hot Water Over Data Retention | PCWorld Business

The European Union's chief regulator, the European Commission, has ordered
the two countries to take action to ensure compliance with the E.U.'s data
retention law. However, rulings in their respective national Constitutional
Courts blocked national laws enforcing the Data Retention Directive.

This directive requires telecom companies to retain data identifying the
user, recipient, date, type, location of the equipment, and time and
duration of all communications. This applies to email as well as phone calls
and text messages. The information must be available to be handed over to
national police on a case-by-case basis. In 2010, the average European had
his traffic and location data logged in a telecom database once every six
minutes, according to European Digital Rights organization, EDRi.
