NEWBURY, UK -- Vodafone Group today published its first Law Enforcement Disclosure report which provides a detailed insight into the legal frameworks, governance principles and operating procedures associated with responding to demands for assistance from law enforcement and intelligence agencies across 29 countries. The report - which is the first of its kind published anywhere in the world - consists of three sections:

  • a detailed overview of the legal, governance and operational factors underpinning law enforcement and intelligence agency access to customers' private data;
  • a country-by-country section providing aggregate statistical data where permissible, both from Vodafone’s local operations and from official sources, on the volume of demands made by government authorities, and summaries of the outcome of Vodafone's extensive analysis of the extent to which it is lawful to disclose information related to agency and authority demands; and
  • a legal annexe summarising the most relevant legislation governing agency and authority access to customer data in each of Vodafone's 29 countries of operation. This information has not previously been published by any operator and is made available by Vodafone on a Creative Commons licence to enable others to expand the body of work over time.

    The report covers agency and authority demands for lawful interception and communications data for the period 1 April 2013 to 31 March 2014. It will be updated at least annually in future and can be found online at www.vodafone.com/sustainability/lawenforcement
