Look who's fallen foul of Europe's data retention rules. France and Germany

Potemkine! Silver badge

RGPD allows data retention for a period that can be justified by the goal of that retention. What is this duration isn't listed (and that's logical, RGPD cannot be exhaustive) so courts must decide if the data retention is OK or not. Inthat case, ECJ decided it wasn't.

It's good to see that States are subjected to the decisions of the independent ECJ. It shows the EU works like a true democracy.

It may be time to expel Hungary from the EU by the way.
