Lawful access to telecommunications

Data retention

In the context of the data retention obligations, data is information about a communication rather than the content or substance of a communication:

  • For telephone calls, data includes the telephone numbers of the people talking to each other and how long they talked for—not what they said.
  • For emails, data is information such as the relevant email addresses and when it was sent—not the subject line of the email or its content.
