UK says comms metadata can kill personal privacy

Big Brother

Am I understanding this correctly?

It's ok to collect and store every phone number and every IP address we communicate with as long as they don't look up who's phone number/ IP address it is?

I'm going to sleep so much easier tonight


Great, so we've got a nice little table listing different data collection levels with corresponding examples where it relates to a phone call. BUT, still no clear explanation of how this relates to INTERNET access.

The examples of phone calls and 'envelopes' (as used by our mob) most closely match e-mail but just don't reflect the situation with web content.


Hello old friend

Ah yes, the default HTML table styling, how I have missed thee!
