rules restricting access to certain types of information

Confidentiality is an ethical principle associated with several professions (e.g., medicine, law, religion) in which professionals do not share the secrets entrusted to them by clients, patients or parishioners.


  • Whatever, in connection with my professional service, or not in connection with it, I see or hear, in the life of men, which ought not to be spoken of abroad, I will not divulge, as reckoning that all such should be kept secret.
