For example, because of the relationship between the parties as an employee and an employer, the category of information treated confidentially in Faccenda Chicken-v- Fowler was held only in accordance with confidentiality obligations. In the case of Ocular Sciences Limited -v- Aspect Vision Care Limited, the courts found that this category of information would not necessarily attract confidentiality if it were communicated between two parties.
