"The answers provided to the questionnaire indicate great differences regarding the content of the information given to the data subject.... the data protection information seems to be diluted into the huge amount of information given to an asylum seeker or to an illegal alien. Besides, it tends to be more general and incomplete.

Although the majority of the Member States refer that the fact that the information contains explanations on the consequences of being fingerprinted, as well as on the exchange of personal data with other countries, there is still a significant number of countries that do not provide such information. Indeed, according to the general assessment made by the DPAs on the quality of the right to information, only a minority considered the information provided is fully in compliance with the Eurodac Regulation meaning “complete”, “clear” or “appropriate”."
