Explanation: حساسة ولكن ليست سرية
USA considers it as "confidential", UK
Q:I received UK material marked "Commercial in Confidence," can you advise what this marking means?
A: The British Ministry of Defence (MOD) advised that if it is only marked 'Commercial in Confidence' or 'Commercial', without 'Restricted', it is unclassified. It is a privacy marking. Program documentation should include procedures on handling sensitive but unclassified information.
UK material marked "Restricted -Commercial" or Restricted [anything else] should be treated in exactly the same way as straightforward UK Restricted material. The "Commercial" marking is a descriptor to identify the type or content of the information. If it has Restricted in the marking than it is classified.
The government of Australia also uses the marking "Commercial-in-Confidence." It is a privacy marking used for "commercial information which may be prejudiced by unauthorized disclosure." It is to be protected in a manner similar to RESTRICTED information, although a security clearance is not required for access to this type of information.
Electronic transmission of Commercial-in-Confidence information requires commercial grade encryption which has been approved by the relevant national communications security authority; with the exception of transmission by facsimile which may be conducted without encryption provided that arrangements are made for the recipient to attend the receiving facsimile machine at the time of transmission/reception. Transmission by mail/courier does not require government-to-government procedures.
