Judgment in Case C-698/15 has held that the general retention of traffic and location data is incompatible with EU Law. The Court of Justice for the European Union (CJEU) found that the indiscriminate retention of traffic and location data, along with the ability to access that data without having to go through an independent body, was contrary to EU law. Although the case was brought to the CJEU in respect of the Data Retention and Investigatory Powers Act 2014 (DRIPA), this legislation has now been replaced by the Investigatory Powers Act 2016, the content of which, if judged by the same criteria, is arguably more problematic than its predecessor.
