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.
