(a)no entry relating to a number specified in the request shall be included in that directory;
(b)no entry therein shall contain a reference which reveals his sex; and
(c)no such entry shall contain such part of his address as is so specified.
(4) Where, in connection with the production of a directory, information relating to a particular subscriber is supplied to the producer thereof by some other person–
