Dear Informatics,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

- a list of lobby meetings held by DG DIGIT with Facebook or its intermediaries. The list should include: date, individuals attending + organisational affiliation, the issues discussed;
- minutes and other reports of these meetings;
all correspondence (i.e. any emails, correspondence or telephone call notes) between DG DIGIT (including the Commissioner and the Cabinet) and Facebook or any intermediaries representing its interests.

Yours faithfully,
Margarida da Silva
Rue d' Edimbourg 26

Generaldirektion Informatik

Dear Madam,

Thank you for your message dated 25/04/2018. We hereby acknowledge receipt of your application for access to documents. Unfortunately, due to a regrettable administrative oversight, your application has been registered only today (25/05/2018), under reference GESTDEM 2018/2872. We apologise for this mistake.

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding public access to European Parliament, Council and Commission documents, your application will be handled within 15 working days. The time limit will expire on 15/06/2018. In case this time limit needs to be extended, you will be informed in due course.

Although you do not state the period covered by your request for access, it has been brought to our attention that you have indicated to other Commission departments (in relation to identically-worded requests) that you were "interested in documents from the 1st of November of 2014 onward". Therefore we will assume that your application to DG DIGIT refers to the same period.

You have lodged your application via the website. Please note that this is a private website which has no link with any institution of the European Union. Therefore the European Commission cannot be held accountable for any technical issues or problems linked to the use of this system.

Please note also that the European Commission is not responsible for any possible processing of personal data by the private organisation running the website, through which you have channelled your request. Please refer to their privacy policy.

Yours faithfully,
