“(8A) “Journalistic data” means electronic data that:
(a) was created or acquired for the purposes of journalism, and
(b) is stored by or on behalf of a person who created or acquired it for the purposes of journalism.
(8B) Where a person (“R”) receives electronic data from another person (“S”) and S intends R to use the data for the purposes of journalism, R is to be taken to have acquired the data for those purposes.
(8C) Journalistic data is “confidential journalistic data” if:
(a) it is acquired or created by a person or persons in their capacity as a journalist and is held in confidence, or
(b) it is communications data of a person acting in their capacity as a journalist, or
(c) it is held subject to a restriction on disclosure, or an obligation of secrecy, contained in any enactment (whenever passed or made).”
