The CJEU Gives the UK Government Another Brexit Dilemma

As already reported in a previous post, the EUCJ rejectedthe recent snooping act to allow retention of personal data in UK under the remarks that:

  • General and indiscriminate retention of personal data is contrary to European law.
  • Personal data can only be retained when strictly necessary for the purposes of combatting serious crime.
  • Access to retained personal data must be limited to the strictly necessary and subject to appropriate privacy safeguards (e.g. prior authorisation by a judge or other independent body).
