"For the conclusion of the contract, we need a current self-disclosure from you" - it is often in a sentence like this that you hear the term self-disclosure for the first time. It usually means a credit report that helps the potential contract partner to get an overview of your financial and economic situation.
Self-disclosure in the sense of data protection law, however, means data disclosure in accordance with Article 15 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation - GDPR for short. Unlike the self-disclosure that can be obtained from credit agencies, the data disclosure pursuant to the GDPR provides an overview of all personal data that is processed about you by the body responsible according to data protection law.
