En route to Seattle now, so we can talk about this later if need be.

The Online Publishers Association is opposed to 4c. Some of our members may decide to honor the DNT signal regardless of whether the UA is deemed compliant. If publishers want to go above and beyond the call of duty, then they should be able to do that. Also, in general, we have all already agreed that first parties are largely exempt from the restrictions. This would constitute a new burden for publishers to differentiate between compliant and non-compliant browsers.

I'd be interested in hearing your comments on the suggested changes to the following.

Part III Explicit and Separate User Choice

1.     A User Agent must obtain explicit, informed consent to turn on the DNT header*

2.     The User Agent must also make available via a link in explanatory text where DNT is enabled to provide more detailed information about DNT functionality

3.     Any User Agent claiming compliance must have a functional implementation of the browser exceptions in this specification

4.     Servers MAY MUST respond to users that their UA is “non-compliant” if they believe this to be the case

a.     User Agents MUST relay Server responses to users to ensure transparency

b.     Servers SHOULD MUST be prepared to defend why they have reached this conclusion

c.      Servers that respond to 100% of DNT requests regardless of User Agent details ARE NOT compliant with this recommendation

d.     Servers MAY MUST offer users additional information through a resource link

5.     Efforts to misled users to activate Do Not Track MAY also be seen as “non-compliant”

*NOTE – The TPWG already agreed on this point

Thank you for sending this Shane. While there are still some items we would like to see in the two documents that might not be reflected in the current industry proposal, in the spirit of cooperation and advancing the process IAB supports this approach. I look forward to discussing it this week.

Please find attached the detailed proposal text we¹ll be reviewing tomorrow afternoon (built upon the proposal outline I provided last week).

The following individuals, companies, and trade associations contributed to this proposal:

Marc Groman & David Wainberg ­ NAI
Alan Chapell ­ Chapell & Associates
Heather West, Sean Harvey, & Ian Fette ­ Google
Shane Wiley ­ Yahoo!

There is considerable detail covering numerous topics in this proposal and therefore it should not be consider an endorsement by all contributors to all parts of this proposal.  That said, all contributors generally agree with the direction and approach of this document.

We look forward to further discussion and fielding questions tomorrow afternoon.

Thank you,
