RE: technical, business, legal definitions

Generally whether expected or not, we've come close to this same structure (to some degree) with the following terms:

- 1st Party (Data Controller)
- Service Provider (Data Processor)
- 3rd Party (3rd Party)

- Shane

Subject: technical, business, legal definitions

This morning in Bruxelles, Roy proposed to use the definitions of European commission prose about 

* Processor
* Third Parties
* Controller

Rob said that it was better to focus on technical definitions, than the legal, business ones of Europe. Currently, I have the feeling that our definitions are _not_ technical specifically in the compliance document. A technical definition of 1st party/3rd party in terms of the HTTP protocol will be very defined but it's not what we have done so far.
