  • a legal obligation exists to provide disclosure (Art. 6 Para. 1 Letter c GDPR),
  • disclosure is necessary to exercise and defend legal claims and no reason exists for assuming that you have an overriding legitimate interest in the non-disclosure of your data (Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 Letter f GDPR).

However, in these cases, the scope of the sent data will only be limited to the necessary minimum.
