Title: AW: [DENICenum-l] data point - anonymous E.164 number usage

Hallo Frau Dolderer,

ich glaube nicht, dass ihre Aussage korrekt ist / I do not think that your following statement is correct:

Your wrote:
"interestingly in Germany the federal administartive court has decided in October 2003 that the storage of customer data for prepaid customers is illegal."

"Rather, I beleive the federal administartive court has decided in October 2003 that it is not illegal not to store customer data for prepaid customers."

Also, m.E. hat das Gericht entschieden, dass es nicht illegal ist, keine Kundendaten fr Prepaid-Kunden zu erheben. Das ist etwas anderes, als zu behaupten, die Mobilfunknetzbetreiber wrden etwas illegales tun.

interestingly in Germany the federal administartive court has decided in October 2003 that the storage of customer data for prepaid customers is illegal. More on this issue (in German only)
