usually publishes the content of applicants’ correspondence with the
Commission on that website. This includes the personal data that you may
have communicated to the 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

If you do not wish that your correspondence with the Commission is
published on a private third-party website such as AsktheEU.org, you can
