Data flows and DG Justice

The request was partially successful.

Dear Justice and Consumers,

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:

- minutes and other reports of the meetings of the European Commissioner for Justice, Věra Jourová and other officials and representatives of his DG about all the issue related to digital trade (including those of Data Flows, data localisation and data transfer) with private providers of digital services (including tech companies and tech industry groups such as ESF, Digital Europe or BusinessEurope, but also lobby consultancies, law firms and others working for tech industry clients or otherwise representing the tech industry) in the EU between January 1st 2012 and today;

I would prefer you to produce the documents on a rolling basis, rather than waiting until the full response is ready, and I would be pleased to receive an initial list of all documents as soon as possible.

Errekatxu Kalea nº13
48902 Bilbao, España

Yours faithfully,
