1. The information constitutes an official or commercial secret in the case when the information has real or potential commercial value due to its unknown to third parties, there is no free access to it legally and the information owner takes measures to protect its confidentiality. Information that cannot constitute official or commercial secrets is determined by law and other legal acts. 2. Information constituting official or commercial secrets is protected by the methods provided for by this Code and other laws. Persons who illegally obtained information that constitutes an official or commercial secret are obliged to compensate for the losses caused. The same duty is imposed on employees who divulge official or commercial secrets contrary to the employment contract, including the contract, and to counterparties who did so in defiance of the civil law contract.
