Dear European Data Protection Board,
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:
- The final report "Government access to data in third countries" was recently published via https://edpb.europa.eu/our-work-tools/ou... by the EDPB. My requests refers to this document.
- on page 4 of the Final Report states: "Thereafter, a customised questionnaire was composed per country, tackling the higher defined loopholes. These country questionnaires were approved by the EDPB, making it possible to distribute the questionnaires to carefully selected experts in each country. To have a broad perspective, the researchers of this study strived to find persons working in different legal fields (academia, non-profit sector, the Bar ...). In total, 29 experts were contacted. However, only eight experts agreed to be interviewed. Reasons for refusal included lack of time and unwillingness to commit to the signature of additional documents, such as the consent form for data processing and nondisclosure agreement. The contacted experts responding positively to the invitation to participate in the questionnaire were subsequently interviewed. These interviews were conducted, both in writing and orally depending on the preference of the experts. As a last step for this study, the interviews were carefully analysed and compared with the results of the desk research. "
1) please send me the anonymized interview results of the eight interviewees (e.g. in the form of questionnaires, telephone transcripts), each with concrete reference to the questions as referenced in the Annex 1 to the Final Report.
2) Please send me the comparison between the interview results and the "desktop research" (e.g. in form of mapping tables), also anonymized.
Thank you for your message and for your interest in data protection. We
will look into your request and get back to you within due time.
The EDPB Secretariat
