Argentina

Current Status: Argentina’s controversial data retention law was passed as an amendment to the National Telecommunications Law of 2003. This law, and its secondary regulation, compelled all telecommunications companies and Internet Service Providers to record, index, and store traffic data for a 10-year period and provide this information to the Argentinean Judicial Branch and the Attorney General's Office when required. In May 2009, the Argentinean Supreme Court re-affirmed that Argentina’s data retention law was unconstitutional. The data retention legislation was annulled due to lack of precision in its wording and the court called the law a "drastic interference with the private sphere of the individual."
