To my not-legally-trained mind "to whom the data are disclosed" is a
very important phrase in both of the above clauses. This may be
interpreted to mean _intentional_ disclosure which I'm sure was not what
the subject had in mind at all. I wonder how this would affect the
admissibility in court of gathered data.
Unless of course the Internet Cafe in question made at least a small
effort at informing users that data may be monitored in cases of
suspected about or some such handwaving.
