CJEU Ruling

In its ruling, the CJEU confirmed that EU law precludes the general and indiscriminate retention of traffic and location data relating to electronic communications for the purposes of combating serious crime.

The national court may not impose a temporal limitation on the effects of a declaration of invalidity of a national law that provides for such retention.
