Re: June Change Proposal, definitions of collect/retain

Hi David,

I've create ISSUE-204 to the Compliance June product; a new issue for the topic of this change. (It may also be related to ISSUE-16, but this is more narrowly defined.)

I've set up a wiki page for this proposal: http://www.w3.org/wiki/Privacy/TPWG/Change_Proposal_Transience_Collection

It occurs to me that one iteration would be to define "retain" alone, rather than defining collection and retention as the same.

Thanks,
Nick
