It seems awfully late to be discussing what constitutes a common objective.

How about we define and agree on a definition of privacy? With that out of the way the objective will hopefully become a lot easier. What about starting with the CDT definition? Anything wrong with that?

Jeff,

I think we all want to see a spec come out that is meaningful and can see broad adoption by websites while providing a meaningful benefit to consumers over the current status-quo. That said, I don't appreciate being misrepresented to press. On that call we were discussing defaults, IE10, and choice. What I expressed on that call was that, as we have agreed since the beginning in this WG, DNT is a voluntary mechanism that we are hoping people will opt-in to. Sites have an option as to whether or not they will support DNT, and whether they will support it uniformly for all requests or, for instance, decline the request from user agents known to set it by default, and ideally have some mechanism in the spec to provide notice to that effect to the user.

That's a far cry from saying "we will be able to do whatever [we] want anyways."

As to your last point, I continue to feel that the biggest obstacle this working group faces is that we still have not yet agreed on a common purpose that we are working towards. We came to the table intending to provide a mechanism through the browser with which users could opt-out of receiving online behavioural advertisements. Others came to the table with the aim of solving the Article 29 "opt-in" issues. Others still have come to the table with the objective of stopping all data collection by "third parties". Until we can agree on a common objective for this WG, I fear we may continue to operate in a less-than-optimal manner.

That's precisely the problem. Certain people from this working group seem to have no problem taking statements made on calls and feeding warped versions of those statements to reporters; such tactics do not typically go far when one is trying to be a "negotiator" to reach a "grand compromise". (Also, most "negotiators" whom I have seen be successful in the past, hostage negotiators excepted, have been neutral uninterested third parties, not someone with a clear axe to grind.)

Shane and Mike,

As the Bellevue meeting approaches, this group's sole focus must be attaining consensus on a moderate compromise.  I'm doing everything I can to facilitate that goal.  I have neither the time nor patience to swap puerile barbs for cheap political points.  There's far too much at stake.

As for the unfair competition claims, that is laughable. The only legal claim we should be discussing is one of liable for such ridiculous statements.

I would add that more than one advertising company expressed concern about possible retaliation if they broke away from the industry trade groups.  I'll leave it to regulators to decide if the industry's practices constitute unfair competition.

Shane,

You and Roy have been vocal in your objections to the EFF/Mozilla/Stanford compromise proposal. I'm disappointed, though given your inflexibility throughout this process, entirely unsurprised.

That said, you do not speak for the online advertising industry. Many companies have been more willing to countenance constructive compromise. Your conclusion that advertising industry participants have "mostly rejected" the proposal is inaccurate.

Jonathan's proposal does attempt to address this point but many in the room feel this should be left to local law. Justin Brookman and I took a pass at this language but it shifted to becoming overly prescriptive (legislating via tech standard) so many in the WG asked for local law to determine.

I would suggest this conversation be extracted from Jonathan's proposal to be handled separately as the rest of proposal has been mostly rejected by those in the WG that are intended to implement DNT in the real-world (on the 1st party/3rd party side).

More to come in Seattle...

Shane -- I am not remotely attempting doing so.

As far back as I can see, the spec was going to put conditions on the
means by which out of band consent can be sought.

Jonathan et al's proposal is:

1. Actual presentation: The choice mechanism MUST be actually presented
to the user. It MUST NOT be on a linked page, such as a terms of service
or privacy policy.
2. Clear terms: The choice mechanism MUST use clear, non-confusing
terminology.
3. Independent choice: The choice mechanism MUST be presented
independent of other choices. It MUST NOT be bundled with other user
preferences.
4. No default permission: The choice mechanism MUST NOT have the user
permission preference selected by default.

Maybe we are getting sidetracked.

Can you please explain the scope of tracking that results from using
Yahoo!'s IdM mechanism? Does it mean you can track all my activities on
the specific authenticated site? If so does this carry across multiple
explicitly authenticated sites? Does it operate in a manner analogous to
single sign-on? How does it interact with the existing DAA opt-out?

There are 2 questions here. One is whether you can bundle in the
obligation to consent to secondary purposes as a condition of
authentication in an IdM context. The primary service in an IdM context
is authentication, not OBA.

The second is to what extent the DNT spec should address this. I took
the 'independent choice' out of band consent criteria as an attempt to
prevent bundling of choices.

secondary to
the primary service being offered.

online

simply withdraw from using the service they had provided prior

outside the scope of DNT.

DNT is not the privacy silver bullet and answer to all privacy

I confirm that we agreed that the out-of-band agreement will trump
the DNT:1 signal. We also agreed that the service has to signal this
to the client.

I guess, what Rob is trying to achieve is to say, even in this
context, a service could offer the choice of stopping to track and
only use information for the login/authentication purpose. This
could be the meaning of DNT:1 if the Service sends ACK in a
login/authentication context. If you're looking for medical
information in a login context, you don't want your login provider
to spawn that to your insurance. I think this is a very legitimate
use case. The service could say: "yes, I see your point" and send
ACK instead of "out-of-band".

We are just defining switches. People will decide whether they
switch stuff on or off or provide a switch at all.
