EU top court limits governments’ snooping on mobiles only for serious threats

The European Court of Justice has ruled that Member States’ data protection norms prevent the States from indiscriminately holding personal data seized from internet and phone companies, even if it’s for assessing threats to national security. The EU top court, however, said security agencies may briefly hold on to bulk data for a limited amount of time when a Member State faces a serious threat.

I would be curious to know what constitutes "a serious threat" and a threat to who. Unless that is very spelled out it would be easy to abuse.

I really want to get a simplified breakdown of what this entails entirely because I'm paranoid about underhanded unethical laws due to my American upbringing. The simplified bit also due to my Florida upbringing.

That's good Europe is respecting their citizens right to privacy.
