ACTION-70 ISSUE-65
Fine, I suppose. I'd rather just not have any text on this topic at 
all, and let the existing rules work it out.

If a user is logged into a third-party website, and the third party receives a DNT:1 signal, then it MUST respect the DNT:1 signal unless it falls under an exemption described in section 3.4.

The shopping website continues to provide recommendations, order history, etc. The shopping site includes third-party advertisements. Those third-parties continue to respect DNT:1. When the user purchases the items in their basket, a third-party financial transaction service is used. The user interacts with the third-party service, at which point it becomes first-party and may use previously collected data.

The user has interacted with LogMeIn, and now it can act as a first-party. Now the user vists Website B, which also uses the LogMeIn service, but is branded differently than Website A. LogMeIn MUST respect the DNT:1 signal until the user chooses to interact with LogMeIn in order to log into Website B.
