Hi Folks,

enclosed is the proposal on a definition of 1st parties as indicated
on the call.

An assumption is that FIRST PARTIES and AFFILIATES will later need to
satisfy relaxed requirements compared to THIRD PARTIES.

The goals of the def are:
 - Not to fix the mechanisms.
 - To put the burden of proof/implementation/mechanism/design
   on the parties that want to fall under the exemptions.


A FIRST PARTY MUST be able to reliably determine that
 - The user has explicitly visited a web-site of this party
 - That the user has consciously and willingly interacted with it

An AFFILIATE MUST be able to reliably determine
 [criteria defined elsewhere: suggestions were
   - co-branding
   - co-ownership
   - same origin...]

All other parties SHOULD be considered THIRD PARTY.
