“iiNet is concerned that a number of law enforcement agencies, such as the NT, Victorian and WA Police, have in the course of this Review again submitted that the government should introduce a mandatory data retention regime,” the telco wrote. Such a proposal was shelved in mid-2013 following a similar review.

“These proposals extend to data not currently collected by all service providers,” the telco continued. “For example, iiNet does not retain browsing history. Even if we did retain this data, the Australian Privacy Principles highlight that best practice is to not retain personal information for any longer than we need the data.”

iiNet said it agreed with observations made by industry representative group the Communications Alliance in its own submission that a data retention scheme would involve an increased risk to the privacy of Australians and provide an incentive to hackers and criminals; and that data retention is at odds with the prevailing policy to maximise and protect privacy and minimise the data 
held by organisations. Industry believes it is generally preferable for consumers that telecommunications service providers retain the least amount of data necessary to provision, maintain and bill for services.
