Dear Colleagues,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, provided in Regulation 1049/2001, I request documents about "Facebook", and that contain the terms "processing purpose" or "purpose of/for processing", in singular or plural.

I request all documents that fulfil this criterion from the date of the Commission's Communication (on the GDPR) of 4 November 2010 to the present day.

"Processing purpose" corresponds to the meaning in Article 5(1)b of the GDPR.

This request for documents includes, but is not limited to, minutes; notes, whether hand written or typed; audio recordings; verbatim reports; e-mails; correspondence, telephone calls, video calls, publications; reports; presentations; telephone calls; and policy papers.

I would very much appreciate your assistance in this matter.

Faithfully,

Dr Johnny Ryan

Dear Sir,

Thank you for your request for access to documents.

Unfortunately, you have not indicated your postal address that is required for registering and handling your request in line with the procedural requirements.

Please send us your full postal address at your earliest convenience.

Pending your reply, we reserve the right to refuse the registration of your request.

You may, of course, use directly the electronic form for entering your request: http://ec.europa.eu/transparency/regdoc/....

You have lodged your application via the AsktheEU.org website. Please note that this is a private third-party 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 that the private third party running the AsktheEU.org website is responsible and accountable for the processing of your personal data via that website, and not the European Commission. For further information on your rights, please refer to the third party’s privacy policy.

We understand that the third party running that website usually publishes the content of applicants’ correspondence with the European Commission on that website. This includes the personal data that you may have communicated to the European Commission (e.g. your private postal address).

Similarly, the third party publishes on that website any reply that the Commission will send to the email address of the applicants generated by the AsktheEU.org website.

If you do not wish your correspondence with the European Commission to be published on the AsktheEU.org website, you can provide us with an alternative, private e-mail address for further correspondence.

In that case, the European Commission will send all future electronic correspondence addressed to you only to that private address.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Colleagues,

There is no valid procedural requirement that permits a refusal to register a request to access documents pending the provision of a postal address. Nor is any such requirement is cited in your correspondence. Therefore I anticipate your response within 15 days of my request, meaning by 17 April 2020.

The Commission has rightly directed its staff to work from their homes to reduce the risk to their health from Covid-19. In this situation it would be impractical for you to limit your response to hard copy. To minimise inconvenience and risk to your staff and to me, I request an electronic response only.

However, to avoid further delay, I copy my postal address here:
Brave London, Mindspace Shoreditch, 9 Appold St, London, EC2A 2AP, UK.

Yours faithfully,

Johnny Ryan
