Dear Mr Schindler,

We are coming back to your request for access to documents, registered
under reference GestDem 2020/3462. Unfortunately, you have not indicated
your postal address. This is necessary  for registering and handling your
request in line with the procedural requirements.

Please send us your full postal address at your earliest convenience.
Pending your reply, we reserve the right to refuse the handling of your
request.

Alternatively, you may use directly the electronic form available on the
Europa website:
[5]http://ec.europa.eu/transparency/regdoc/....

 

We notice that 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 specific 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 (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 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.

Thank you for your email. I am happy to assist you in providing more information. The company has been listed in the EU transparency register at https://ec.europa.eu/transparencyregiste... and you can find the names of some of their representatives in this list. Since a complete list of representatives is unavailable, I would like to emphasise that this request should not just cover the people listed in this entry.

The company was founded in 2004, the timeframe should not extend beyond this date.

Please indicate if more information is required.

Yours sincerely,

Mathias Schindler
