Journo wins Telstra fight to view his personal data

THE Privacy Commissioner has ruled that metadata is personal, finding that Telstra must hand over information it holds about a journalist, two years after he exercised his legal right to see his personal metadata.

Fairfax journalist Ben Grubb requested access to personal metadata Telstra held about him two years ago.

At the time there was a debate about how police and spy agencies had gathered this information.

"This is a landmark decision. There's never been a ruling like this before," Grubb said after Monday's ruling.

Telstra said it would appeal the decision.
