Germans hand police too much data, court rules

German authorities have too much access to people’s internet and mobile phone data and laws must be rewritten as they are unconstitutional, a court says.

The federal Constitutional Court in Karlsruhe has ruled that the privacy of Germans should be better protected. Police investigating crimes or trying to prevent terror attacks are currently allowed to access names, addresses, birth dates and IP addresses.
