"If a company does not SELL client information but only gives it away, that is still illegal too, no?"

The don't "sell" the information now. They "share" it with their "partners". Their partners share their revenue with them or reciprocate "in-kind". All weasel wording that can be reduced down to a an exchange of one thing for another or, more simply, a sale.
