Does this mean that a party could sign a contract with DAA (or other trade association) describing its collection practices, use the common "brand" of the DAA icon, describe its practices in a privacy policy and then share with every other entity that does the same thing, i.e., all the other DAA members?

> 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.
