Whether we pursue Justin/Ian's text for Option 1 or not, I don't think it makes sense to apply that text to Option 2. Applying a list of prohibited practices to data retained for any publicly stated time period would reverse the widespread agreement over the form of the Third Party Compliance section: a general prohibition with an enumerated (white) list of permitted uses.

Nick
