Re: Deciding Exceptions (ISSUE-23, ISSUE-24, ISSUE-25, ISSUE-31, ISSUE-34, ISSUE-49)

Shane – excellent article and I could not agree more!  DNT through the browser is far more user friendly in terms of privacy and choice and we can all agree the current framework where cookies are used to stop use of cookies for tracking is humorous at best.  ComScore has done excellent research on the issue of cookie deletion of both 1st and 3rd party cookies and the numbers range from 30-40% a month which seriously impacts the ability to truly abide by user choice in terms of privacy.  DNT is a no brainer because it is not reliant on cookie and their continued crumbling – which is the beauty of what we are trying to accomplish here – user simply flips a switch to gain what they are looking for…privacy from Google to small ad networks – no exceptions or exemptions – simple choice – yes or no (and wiping cookies from your device does not reset your decision without your understanding).

I disagree and would reference recent presentations by Brill (IAPP 2011 - DC) and Leibowitz (DAA Partnering on DNT) that feel appropriate use limitations and hardening (persistence) of a user’s opt-out choice are the goal.

Regulators in both US and EU now say that its both collection and use that's the problem.  The US regulators understand that the industry has implemented a wide-ranging first+third party data collection system (ad exchanges are good example of this).  We will see greater focus on collection in regulatory policy debates.

Hi Team,

for DNT-related data,  Roy's assessment of the key regulatory concerns
matches my experience

Judging from my personal discussions with regulators, I would not
say that data collection constraints are a significant concern.
Data sharing (on purpose or by failure to handle it properly) is
the primary concern.  Data retention beyond that necessary to
support user-consented operational uses, or in a form that is
unnecessary to support operational uses, is a concern.
Obtaining specific and informed consent is a concern.
