Change Proposals: Issue 10

From: Alan Chapell <achapell@chapellassociates.com>
Date: Tue, 08 Oct 2013 13:23:36 -0400
To: "public-tracking@w3.org" <public-tracking@w3.org>
Message-ID: <CE79B7D8.3ACC4%achapell@chapellassociates.com>
Proposal: Party definition Make affiliate list an example; add ownership OR
contract as ways to reach "common party" status
This builds upon a previous Proposal from Amy Colando
<http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-tracking/2013Jun/0370.html>  and
Proposal from Chris Pedigo
<http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-tracking/2013Jun/0390.html>  and
is in response to a suggestion from Justin Brookman as we look for the best
home for this concept.


This is a replacement for last few sentences in section 2.4 Party


New text
For unique corporate entities to qualify as a common party with respect to
this document, those entities MUST be EITHER: commonly owned and commonly
controlled OR enter into contract with other parties regarding the
collection, retention, and use of data, share a common branding that is
easily discoverable by a user, and describe their tracking practices clearly
and conspicuously in a place that is easily discoverable by the user.
Regardless, parties MUST provide transparency about what types of entities
are considered part of the same party. Examples of ways to provide this
transparency are through common branding or by providing a list of
affiliates that is available via a link from a resource where a party
describes DNT practices.


Rationale
Strong contractual provisions and branding provide a level of privacy
protections for consumers that is at least as good as Common ownership and
branding.
