Dear Research and Innovation (RTD),
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:
Can you provide me contact information from (personal e-mail and telephone number):
Dear Mr Jacobus,
Thank you very much for your e-mail of 27/04/2012. As you are asking for the provision of contact information and not for access to a specific document, your request is considered to be a request for information and not a request for access to documents. Therefore, it is not covered by Regulation 1049/2001, but by the Code of Good Administrative Behaviour, which sets up general rules for the communication of the EU institutions with the public.
However, the Code of Good Administrative Behaviour states that: "The Commission and its staff shall respect, in particular: the rules on the protection of personal privacy and personal data". Additionally, Regulation 45/2001 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data by the Community Institutions and bodies and on the free movement of such data provides that personal data cannot be disclosed without the agreement of the data subject. As far as we have not been able to find any reference to this gentleman, we have not been able either to ask for his prior consent for disclosure of his contact details.
For these reasons, we are sorry that we cannot provide you with the requested information.
