know-how
Know-how as a term often covers matters such as new product plans, costings, materials, production information, financial status, accountancy information, consumer lists and business information. If such information is particularly sensitive, it may constitute a genuine trade secret where the law will imply obligation upon employees and ex-employees to prevent disclosure. Most other forms of know-how and confidential information can only be restricted, other than during employment, by means of a valid confidentiality undertaking.
