Dutch Court Decides on Scope of GDPR Right of Access
In late December 2019, the Court of The Hague (Netherlands) published a preliminary reference procedure (see here , in Dutch). The Court was asked to decide on the scope of the right of access under the GDPR.
The Court also pointed out that the GDPR does not grant a right to obtain a copy of documents; it only grants a right to obtain a copy of personal data. In relation to documents that do not contain much personal information, such as the e-mails in question, the court held that it suffices to describe the data they contain.
