Controlling your presence for specific contacts in Lync 2013

Is there a way to control who can see your presence in your contact list.  For example I have internal customers that I want them to see my presence, but I don't want external contacts to see my presence.  Is there a capability in Lync 2013 or Skype for Business that disable presence for certain contacts?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Understand presence and privacy relationships

Your presence information includes your availability status (such as available or away), presence indicator (such as green, yellow, or red), schedule, location, and personal and out-of-office notes. The following table shows which presence information attributes are available for a given privacy relationship. Contacts with whom you have a Workgroup relationship are likely to be important. Only these contacts can interrupt you when you have set your status to Do Not Disturb.

NOTE    Non-contacts when in Enhanced Privacy Mode and blocked contacts will see only your display name and email address
