Dear Human Resources and Security,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents since November 2014 which contain the following information:
- a list of lobby meetings held by this DG with Google or its intermediaries. The list should include: date, individuals attending + organisational affiliation, the issues discussed;
- minutes and other reports of these meetings;
- all correspondence including attachments (i.e. any emails, correspondence or telephone call notes) between this DG (including the Commissioner and the Cabinet) and Google or any intermediaries representing its interests.
- All documents prepared for the purpose of the meeting and/or exchanged during the course of the meeting

Yours faithfully,
Margarida da Silva
Rue d' Edimbourg 26

Dear Madam,

Thank you for your e-mail dated 7 March 2019. We hereby acknowledge receipt of your application for access to documents, which was registered today under reference number GestDem 2019/2124.

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 2 May 2019. In case this time limit needs to be extended, you will be informed in due course.

You have lodged your application via the 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 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 website.

If you do not wish your correspondence with the European Commission to be published on the 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,
