Dear Climate Action,

I am requesting a copy of each Access to Documents request from 2018 and 2019 that was refused registration because the requesting person did not provide a postal address.

Please do not transfer this request to another authority, I am specifically asking for requests that were sent to you.

I am perfectly fine with the redaction of personal information.

Since my postal address is on file and there is no legal requirement for a provision of a postal address (and since the European Commission has stopped sending out physical letters in Access to Document request procedures during the pandemic anyway) please do not bother asking me again for a postal address, which yould be especially hillarious given the topic of this request, don't you think?

Yours faithfully,

Mathias Schindler

Dear Mr Schindler,

Thank you for your e-mail of 5 June 2020. We hereby acknowledge receipt of your application for access to documents, which was registered on the same day under reference number GESTDEM 2020/3450.

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 29 June 2020. In case this time limit needs to be extended, you will be informed in due course.

You have lodged your application via 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 Commission. For further information on your rights, please refer to the third party’s privacy policy.

We understand that the third party running the AsktheEU.org website 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.

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 that your correspondence with the Commission is published on a private third-party website such as AsktheEU.org, you can provide us with an alternative, private e-mail address for further correspondence. In that case, the Commission will send all future electronic correspondence addressed to you only to that private address, and it will use only that private address to reply to your request. You should still remain responsible to inform the private third-party website about this change of how you wish to communicate with, and receive a reply from, the Commission.

Yours faithfully,
