Current text: "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."

Proposed new text: "A party collects data if it receives data and either shares the data with other parties or retains the data."

Rationale: This definition introduces a new term (transient) that can be left to interpretation that does not provide a way to measure compliance.  Instead of introducing new, undefined terms, I suggest using the defined term 'retain' since that appears to be capturing the intent of 'store the data for more than a transient period'.

Draws upon: Issue-16
