In order to understand this point, I recommend Ian's earlier messages,

  My intent was simply to say "Look. If you're only keeping data for six
  weeks, DNT is REALLY easy for you to comply with. As long as you don't
  use the data to build a model that's used to serve targeted ads to
  users, you're good. If you keep data for more than six weeks, then
  unfortunately life isn't as simple for you, have fun."


  This was really meant as a "If you only log data for six weeks, unless
  you do this one thing (serving OBA ads) you don't have to worry about
  anything, you're compliant with DNT. If you log data for more than six
  weeks, then you have to deal with all of the DNT stuff, have fun."
