Netherlands Rates Low on Privacy

In its annual report, Privacy International has ranked the Netherlands as being among the countries which systematically fail to protect the privacy of its citizens. Among EU countries it ranks No. 21 on privacy issues. This is due mainly to the fact that it is legal to listen to telephone conversations and the fact that Internet providers must keep data. The lowest ranking EU countries are France and England. Among the countries investigated worldwide, Russia, China and Malaysia were the worst.
