Re: Change Proposals: Issue 10

Added Alan's text as a new change proposal for ISSUE-10:

While this builds on the affiliate-list-example text from Amy and Chris, I believe that this is a distinct proposal likely to have different support or raise different concerns among the WG, so I haven't merged it with Chris and Amy's text. Chris, Amy, Alan or others should feel free to correct me if I've got that wrong.


P.S. Sorry for the delay, this one slipped through my processing last week.

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.
