Dear Madam,

Thank you for your e-mail dated 07/03/2019. We hereby acknowledge receipt of your application for access to documents, which was registered on 12/03/2019 under reference number GestDem 2019/1483.

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 02/04/2019. In case this time limit needs to be extended, you will be informed in due course.

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 Madam,

We refer to your e-mail dated 07/03/2019 in which you make a request for
access to documents, registered on 12/03/2019 under the above-mentioned
reference number.

You request access to the following documents:

“For the period between 26 April 2018 to date:

- a list of all lobby meetings held by this DG with Facebook or its
intermediaries. The list should include: date, individuals attending and
organisational affiliation, as well as the issues discussed;

- all minutes and other reports of these meetings;

- all correspondence, including attachements (i.e. any emails,
correspondence or telephone call notes) between this DG (including the
Commissioner and the Cabinet) and Facebook or any intermediaries
representing its interests; and

- all documents prepared for the purpose of the meeting and/or exchanged
during the course of the meeting.”

 

We regret to inform you that DG Economic and Financial Affairs does not
hold any documents that would correspond to the description given in your
application.

As specified in Article 2(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001, the right of
access as defined in that regulation applies only to existing documents in
the possession of the institution.

 

Given that no such documents, corresponding to the description given in
your application, are held by DG Economic and Financial Affairs, we are
not in a position to fulfil your request.

 

Please note that, as part of the Commission’s commitment to transparency,
Commissioners and their members of Cabinet publish information on meetings
held with organisations or self-employed individuals.

Meetings held by Commissioner Moscovici or members of his Cabinet can be
found via the following links:

In accordance with Article 7(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001, you are
entitled to make a confirmatory application requesting the Commission to
review this position.

Such a confirmatory application should be addressed within 15 working days
upon receipt of this letter to the Secretariat-General of the Commission
at the following address:
