And to the person to whom you gave the information?  I thought not.

At their discretion, though.  I could frame a contract in which I and my counter-party agree that if we have a dispute, we'll ask Francis Davey to adjudicate.  But if we phone you up and demand an hour of your time, and you tell us to get stuffed, the contract between us can't compel you.   A contract can of course refer to third parties, but surely it can't bind them to courses of action?  Otherwise my wife and I have just signed a contract which says you're going to give us all your money.
