Dear Mrs. Khan,
We thank you for your email dated 14 January 2022 which was registered

process data related to religious affiliation of its staff.

racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or
philosophical beliefs is prohibited and for this specific case no
conditions (under Art.10.2) for processing special category of data
3. Reference to Articles 1d and 26 of Staff Regulation: respectively
“Principle of non-discrimination of staff based on race, religion,
belief etc..” and “An official's personal file shall contain no
reference to his political, trade union, philosophical or religious
activities and views, or to his racial or ethnic origin or sexual
