Storing User Data - New Regulations
New regulations came into force on 6 April 2009 which require that details of user emails and internet telephone calls are stored by internet service providers (ISPs). The regulations (The Data Retention (EC Directive) Regulations 2009) apply to the retention of communications data relating to internet access, internet telephony and internet email.
The requirements for FE and HE institutions remain as laid down by JANET (which is regarded as a private network) and can be found here - ACTIVITIES: LOGGING AND DATA COLLECTION
