Swedish regulator orders Bahnhof to resume data retention

Tuesday 28 October 2014 | 11:19 CET | News
Swedish regulator PTS has ordered Bahnhof to resume retention of customer data for law enforcement purposes. Since April, Bahnhof has only been keeping data relevant for its commercial purposes. The company has until 24 November to meet the legal requirements for data retention or face a fine of SEK 5 million. A court ruling in Sweden in October affirmed the basis of data retention, which requires customer communications data to be saved by all providers for six months for their eventual use in law enforcement.
