No, there’s no joke inside, the data retention (also known as “Vorratsdatenspeicherung”
or – in Newspeak – “Mindestdatenspeicherung”) starts on the 1st of April 2012.
Although national media covers the topic – now that there are just a few days left –
they refused to cover the topic for the last few months to keep the people calm.
Several independent groups tried to inform our citizens but the vast majority is
still unsure about the effect of data retention and that austrian providers have
to start collecting data in a few days.
You may be disappointed, shocked or frustrated, you may feel indifferent
about the whole topic or just resign …
… or you can respond with proper action!
