Vinge advises Tele2 in proceedings before the CJEU regarding the swedish data retention regulation

Dec. 22, 2016

Vinge has advised Tele2 in connection with proceedings before the CJEU where it has been adjudicated whether the compulsory obligation under Swedish legislation on the providers of electronic communication services to retain data information from their customers is compatible with the EU law.

The judgment was issued on 21 December 2016 and entails that Sweden cannot force telecommunications and internet service providers to generally store information concerning what their customers do on the internet or who they ring or send SMSs to.

Vinge’s team consisted of Martin Johansson and Erik Lagerlöf.
