Questions referred

1.

Is Article 7(c) of Directive 2006/24/EC (1) to be interpreted as meaning that natural persons affected by the retention of data within the meaning of the Directive do not fall into the category of ‘specially authorised personnel’ within the meaning of that provision and may not be granted a right to receive information on data relating to their own person from the provider of a publicly available communications service or a public communications network?

2.

Is Article 13(1)(c) and (d) of Directive 95/46/EC (2) to be interpreted as meaning that the right of natural persons affected by the retention of data within the meaning of Directive 2006/24/EC to receive information on data relating to their own person pursuant to Article 12(a) of Directive 95/46/EC from the provider of a publicly available communications service or a public communications network can be excluded or restricted?

3.

If Question 1 is answered at least partly in the affirmative: Is Article 7(c) of Directive 2006/24/EC compatible with the fundamental right laid down in the second sentence of Article 8(2) [of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union] and thus valid?
