Abstract

The Breyer judgment concerns the storage of subscriber data by telecommunications service providers. To the Court, the collection and storage of such data amounted to interference of a rather limited nature. Additional safeguards were provided in the relevant German laws and there was independent supervision by the data protection authorities. The German lawmaker had not exceeded the margin of appreciation. There had been no violation of Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights.
