SECTION 7: INTERACTION WITH EXISTING USER PRIVACY CONTROLS

As currently drafted, this section is confusing, as it is not clear to which opt-outs the text is referring (user settings for a specific site? Email marketing opt-outs?).  In addition, the table text does not clarify the types of DNT signals that may be received.  If participants desire to incorporate Digital Advertising Alliance self-regulatory principles into the specification, we could reference those, but we also have concerns about including a reference to this program in a global specification where implementers may be in regions where the self-regulatory program has not been deployed.  We suggest this is a suitable topic for an implementation guide, and that the specification itself should be limited to general guidance to implementers.  The table itself should be deleted, and we submit the following text for review:

As a general principle, more specific settings override less specific settings, AS WHERE THE SPECIFIC CONSENT IN USER GRANTED EXCEPTIONS OVERRIDES GENERAL SETTINGS.  IN THE EVENT THAT A PARTY PERCEIVES A CONFLICT BETWEEN SETTINGS, A PARTY MAY SEEK CLARIFICATION FROM THE USER OR MAY HONOR THE MORE RESTRICTIVE SETTING.
