Dear European Data Protection Supervisor,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

All documents pertaining to this EDPS consultation process, e.g., final recommendation of the EDPS:

"The EDPS was recently consulted by one of the EUIs’ libraries. In its Informal Consultation, the EDPS clarified the EUI library’s role and responsibility as a data controller, in the context of transfers of personal data that are necessary between the controller and another natural or legal person, under article 50 (1) (c) of Regulation (EU) 2018/1725.

The EDPS produced its advice on the basis of the European Data Protection Board’s (EDPB) Guidelines on Controllership (2020/07). The EDPB’s Guidelines helped to determine the relationship between the EUI’s library and its subscribers, the EUI’s members of staff. In this context, the EUI’s library is the sole controller when processing subscribers’ personal data when managing the access to various publications, such as magazines; books; journals and newspapers.

The EUI library’s record of processing operations, in its current form, seems to suggest that subscribers to certain publications based outside the European Economic Area (EEA) would need to provide specific consent via a separate data protection statement to the publishers of these publications.

However, the EDPS recommends that this record of processing operations and accompanying data protection statement are modified, since the EUI library can rely on article 50 (1) (c) of Regulation (EU) 2018/1725, because transfers of subscribers’ data to non-EEA publishers are necessary for the access to publications based outside of the EU/EEA.
