Aled, I am not aware of such a guide, but because I have to do with numerous 
(very) small providers, I have been fielding questions about just this. We are 
looking at putting together such a guide with help from people specialising in 
internet law at the law school. We would welcome help from others, particularly 
if they have a legal background.


P.S. I do not, from reading the drafts as the act itself has not been 
published, believe that there is any obligation to store anything unless you 
have received a retention order, but IANAL
