Dutch government to consider new data retention bill

The Dutch Ministry of Security and Justice is coming out with a new data retention proposal, the Cabinet announced after a meeting on 30 October. Data retention will return, with the same terms as initially set: 6 months for internet data traffic and 12 months for call data. To minimize the impact on privacy, several conditions have to be met, including pre-trial detention, crime severity, magistrate review, and data processing and storage within the EU.
