Following an examination of document Ares(2020)6416801, under the provisions of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding public access to documents and taking into account the opinion of the third party, we regret to inform you that your application concerning this document cannot be granted. The author of the annex “Participant List Conference Call ASD Security Business Unit” has objected to disclosure of the document and has motivated its position referring to the exception laid down in Article 4(1)(b) of this Regulation. With regard to the documents with the references Ares(2020)4945862, Ares(2020)3119057, Ares(2020)5644843, Ares(2020)2856338 and Ares(2020)5604503 (Ares reference not visible on this last document) listed above, the documents are annexed. However, a complete disclosure of the identified documents is prevented by the exception concerning the protection of privacy and the integrity of the individual outlined in Article 4(1)(b) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001, because they contain the following personal data: -       the names/initials and contact information of Commission staff members not pertaining to the senior management; -       the names/initials and contact details of other natural persons; -       handwritten signatures/abbreviated signatures of natural persons; -       other information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. 2
