Data protection

Data subject's rights

Right of access

Under Article 19 of the Eurojust Decision, you have a right of access to personal data concerning you processed by Eurojust under the conditions laid down in this article, or you can ask to have such information checked. There is no charge for exercising this right.

To exercise your right of access, you should make a request in writing either to Eurojust or to a competent authority in one of the Member States. Your request will then be sent to Eurojust. Eurojust is required to have fully dealt with your request within three months of receipt.

The right of access is exercised in accordance with the law of the Member State where the request was made. However, Eurojust may refuse to provide access to your information if such a refusal is considered necessary if:

  • such access may jeopardise one of Eurojust's activities;
  • such access may jeopardise any national investigation;
  • such access may jeopardise the rights and freedoms of third parties.

If you are not satisfied with Eurojust's decision, you may appeal against that decision before the JSB. The JSB shall examine whether or not the decision taken by Eurojust is in conformity with Article 19 of the Eurojust Decision.

Right of correction, deletion or blocking

In accordance with Article 19(3) of the Eurojust Decision, you have the right to ask Eurojust to correct, block or delete data concerning you if the date are incorrect or incomplete or if their input or storage contravenes Article 19 of the Eurojust Decision.

If you are not satisfied with Eurojust's reply, you may refer the matter to the JSB within thirty days of receiving Eurojust's decision.

Where to direct a request for access

To exercise your right of access, you should send a written request for access to Eurojust or to one of the competent authorities (see below). You may choose to which of these authorities to make your request, and the right of access will be exercised in accordance with the law of the Member State in which that authority is located.
