the disclosure is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims in accordance with article. 6 (1) sentence 1 letter f) of the DSGVO and there is no reason to assume that the person concerned has an overriding interest worthy of protection in the non-disclosure of his or her data;
