I suggest something slightly different ...

Collect: A party "collects" data if it receives the data and shares the
         data with other parties or stores the data for more than a
         transient period.

Share:   A party "shares" data if it provides a copy or access to the
         data to a third party.


My rationale is that one can share without storing (already mentioned
at DC meeting) and that it isn't "sharing data" if multiple legal
entities within the first party context, including service providers
that meet the contractual obligations of confidentiality, have access
to the data.
