Status of the Document

This section describes the status of this document at the time of its publication. Other documents may supersede this document. A list of current W3C publications and the latest revision of this technical report can be found in the W3C technical reports index at http://www.w3.org/TR/.

This document was published by the Tracking Protection Working Group as a Last Call Working Draft on 14 July 2015. This document is intended to become a W3C Recommendation. If you wish to make comments regarding this document, please send them to public-tracking-comments@w3.org (subscribe, archives). All comments are publicly archived; if you have not used W3C mailing lists in the past, you will need to approve archiving (instructions are sent via email auto-reply) before your comments will be distributed. The Last Call period ends 07 October 2015. All comments are welcome.

The Tracking Protection Working Group invites broad community review, especially of technical requirements and dependencies. Reviewers are encouraged to comment on the extent to which technical requirements of the group&#x27;s charter have been met and how significant dependencies with groups inside and outside W3C have been satisfied. The Working Group will evaluate all comments received and determine whether or how the specification needs to be modified in light of the comments. Comments will be most useful in identifying particular problems with the specification that might inhibit adoption, or where this specification fails to further goals of user privacy and user control, and whether this specification creates or does not otherwise resolve dependencies with other technical standards, practices, or processes. The Chairs of the Working Group will issue written responses to all comments received.

The Working Group previously published a Last Call Working Draft of the companion Tracking Preference Expression [TPE] specification, which defines mechanisms for expressing a user&#x27;s preference regarding tracking and for communicating whether and how received preferences are honored. That specification is expected to transition to Candidate Recommendation shortly.

Revisions from the previous Working Draft include editorial changes, removal of separate &quot;tracking data&quot; terminology, and updates to compliance with expressed tracking preferences and indications of such compliance. Readers may review changes from the previous Working Draft.

Publication as a Last Call Working Draft does not imply endorsement by the W3C Membership. This is a draft document and may be updated, replaced or obsoleted by other documents at any time. It is inappropriate to cite this document as other than work in progress.

This is a Last Call Working Draft and thus the Working Group has determined that this document has satisfied the relevant technical requirements and is sufficiently stable to advance through the Technical Recommendation process.

This document was produced by a group operating under the 5 February 2004 W3C Patent Policy. W3C maintains a public list of any patent disclosures made in connection with the deliverables of the group; that page also includes instructions for disclosing a patent. An individual who has actual knowledge of a patent which the individual believes contains Essential Claim(s) must disclose the information in accordance with section 6 of the W3C Patent Policy.

This document is governed by the 14 October 2005 W3C Process Document.
