tracking-ISSUE-219 (Context separation): 3rd parties that are 1st parties must not use data across these contexts [Compliance Current]

http://www.w3.org/2011/tracking-protection/track/issues/219

Raised by: Walter van Holst
On product: Compliance Current

The current standard allows for a) 1st parties that sometimes also are 3rd parties to b) use data gathered in that 1st party quality when in a 3rd party quality. This runs counter to reasonable user expectations and against the very core issue: the tracking across different contexts. Therefore:

"the third party MUST NOT use data about previous network interactions in which it was a third party, outside of the permitted uses as defined within this recommendation and any explicitly-granted exceptions, provided in accordance with the requirements of this recommendation."

Should replaced with:

"the third party MUST NOT use data bout previous network interactions in which it was a party, outside of the meritted uses as defined within this recommendation and any explicitly-granted exceptions, provided in accordance with the requirements of this recommendation."
