In this week’s Privacy Tracker roundup, many of the developments across the globe relate to data collection and tracking. In Canada, the Supreme Court has determined there is a reasonable expectation of privacy in subscriber data, while in the U.S., a federal court deemed metadata collection by the National Security Agency constitutional, and the 11th Circuit decided warrants are necessary prior to police accessing location data from service providers. Microsoft is challenging a U.S. federal court order to turn over information stored in a data center in Ireland, claiming it violates international law. Also in this week’s roundup, learn about questions over breach notification in New Zealand’s proposed data protection law and what the legal regime surrounding Australia’s new law may look like.
