Professional secrecy is any knowledge which a person receives from others in the course of his or her duties and which is intended to extend only to a particular group of persons having knowledge, so that the disclosure of it to a third party against the will of the person entrusted with the secret appears to be a breach of an obligation assumed, expressly or implicitly.
