I would propose clarifying and increasing the rigor of this section.
> A party MUST make reasonable efforts to understand its information practices.  If a party learns that it collects information in violation of this standard, it MUST end that collection at the earliest practical opportunity.  If a party learns that it retains information in violation of this standard, it MUST delete that information at the earliest practical opportunity.  If a party learns that it uses information in violation of this standard, it MUST end that use at the earliest practical opportunity.  If a party learns that it shares information in violation of this standard, it MUST end that sharing at the earliest practical opportunity.


I would also consider a reporting requirement.
> If a party discovers it has been in violation of this standard, knowingly or unknowingly, it must make a public disclosure of the violation.  A disclosure may be made in any reasonable manner, such as a prominent notice on a party's main website.
