Controlling your presence for specific contacts in Lync 2013

mystikal1000 used Ask the Experts™
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?
