Dear European Parliament,

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:

1) Indication of whether, which and for what purpose personal data processing services / software of organizations (e.g., as processor / data importer) located outside the EU/EEA are used acutally by the European Parliament.

2) Indication of whether, which and for what purpose such personal data processing services of organizations located within the EU/EEA, but with subcontractors outside the EU/EEA, are actually used by the European Parliament.

3) Per individual of these services with the aforementioned third country references:

a) I request an indication as to whether and which transfers pursuant to Art. 44 et seq. GDPR are triggered by the use of these services.

b) I ask for all contracts concluded with the providers of these services in this respect, which are necessary under data protection law, or for a missing indication if there are no such contracts. In particular, namely: contract for commissioned processing according to Art. 28 DSGVO as well as standard data protection clauses according to Art. 46 GDPR.

c) I request the provision of the documented "Transfer Impact Assessment" required according to clause 14 of the current standard data protection clause sets of the EU Commission or the documented "Transfer Impact Assessment" required according to Art. 46 (1) GDPR in conjunction with the principles from ECJ judgment "Schrems II" regarding the data transfers associated with the use of such services.

It should be possible to find the above information without major effort, in particular by means of corresponding information and links in the official processing directory pursuant to Art. 30 GDPR.

Yours faithfully,
