Re: June Draft Proposal: Collection and Use Definitions

Hi Jonathan,

I've added this proposal to the relevant wiki page:

I strongly suspect that this could be consolidated with the text Lee proposed yesterday, also based on the earlier EFF/Mozilla/Stanford draft. It seems that the "share" definition is functionally equivalent, but your proposal for collects uses "receives" rather than "comes within control".
