From a technical standpoint, what exactly does an ISP "record" with regard to one's online activities?
I'm envisioning a system that is akin to an ongoing "screen capture video" of everything that's taking place on your computer screen while your web browser is open.
Is this what's being talked about? If not, then what exactly (in layman's terms) is being collected and stored for 12 months? Is it more like a "keystroke logger" that records everything you type on the keyboard while the web browser is open?
I'd be appreciative of any links or information that could shed some light as to the exact nature of what's being recorded and/or saved.
