In reply to your mail regarding data retention, this
matter falls to be governed by the Data Protection Act
2004 which regulates the whole domain of Data protection.I
have to underline that this Act is limited to data of a
personal nature.

If the query relates to other kind of data, then this
comes within the province of the Civil laws of Mauritius
if the data is retained within the jurisdiction of the
country. It then becomes an issue of contract e.g in the
case of data kept within the framework of cloud computing.
I hope this answers the query. I am at your disposal for
further clarification if need be.
