The Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) has held that a legal analysis contained in an administrative document relating to an application for a residence permit did not constitute a data subject’s personal data. Consequently, the data subject had no right to that legal analysis. The CJEU also held that a data subject’s right of access to personal data under the Directive was satisfied by merely providing a summary of the personal data contained in the document.
