Hi Jack,

Thank you for your comments (last June) on the TPE Last Call Working Draft.

The Chairs have reviewed the comments and determined that they do not raise new issues, or present new information to justify reopening old issues.

You do not provide new information to support reconsidering previous group decisions to define tracking, party, first party, third party, collects, uses, and shares within TPE.  Compliance regimes may specify whatever rules they want in response to user requests; they are not bound to signal N indicating that they are not engaging in any tracking.

Section 4 of the TPE provides requirements for user agents in ensuring that signals reflect the preference of the user. Additional requirements were suggested during the Last Call process; however, a proposal to include information about DNT-setting party within the DNT signal was rejected by the Working Group.  You do not propose any other alternative approach.

The Chairs previously resolved a Call for Objections on the question of whether user agents must include a persistent DNT:0 setting; in response, several working group members filed a Formal Objection with W3C, which will be addressed with the Director.

Please let us know whether these explanations resolve your concerns.

Nick Doty, W3C
(for Tracking Protection Working Group Co-Chairs: Carl, Justin and Matthias)
