in the summer of 2006, the E.U. Commission tabled a directive. This directive [is] called Data Retention Directive. This directive says that each phone company in Europe,each Internet service company all over Europe, has to store a wide range of information about the users.Who calls whom? Who sends whom an email? Who sends whom a text message? And if you use your mobile phone, where you are. All this information is stored for at least six months, up to two years by your phone company or your Internet service provider.
