Right to Secrecy

At the request of the provider of such information, information about the thoughts, commerce, activities, and engagements of an individual, or the commerce, activities, and engagements of an incorporated entity, must be guarded in confidence by all who are privy to this information only by reason of deliberate communication or transactions with said individual or incorporated entity, unless the subjects of the information have provided permission for disclosure, or in a submission to the judge of a court to determine admissibility as evidence, or a court has ordered that the information be produced as evidence in an official proceeding.

If such information is produced under court order, it is made available only to the judge of the court, and the prosecution and defense in the case including their attorneys, unless and until such time as a conviction has been registered, all avenues of appeal have been exhausted, and the trial minutes are published, in which case such information must be included with the published trial minutes if and only if the judge who issued the final decision relied upon said information in making his decision.

No information originally gathered through surveillance of an individual or his communications and property can be made to directly produce or increase revenue for the individual, organization, or incorporated entity, that performed, sponsored, or directed the surveillance, without the express permission of the surveiled individual.

Information gathered by the state, or by a private party in performance of a contract with the state, or subcontract within the purview of a state contract, through surveillance of an individual, cannot be divulged unless the subjects of the information have provided permission for disclosure, or to law enforcement officials engaged in relevant investigation, or in a submission to the judge of a court to determine admissibility as evidence, or a court has ordered that the information be produced as evidence in an official proceeding.
