Giving something to someone else in general in legal language is 
"giving it to a third party". This conflicts semantically with the 
TPC Spec making a distinction between first and third party. 

I think Justin meant the legal semantics (anyone else). 
Communication to a service provider under our definition is always 
permissible as a service provider works under the control of the one 
using that service. No control, no service provider but independent 
third party in the sense of the TPC. First party is an interesting 
option, but that could be part of the permissible uses, if part of 
the relation to the first party is to give them all the raw data. 
(which creates a loophole that we don't really address here)
