Hi David,

I've added this change proposal to the wiki page for change proposals on issue-148 (as 234 is covering a different change proposal).


I was actually a little surprised to see this on our list, as I thought the group had documented a decision on this last September, which is where the current text (from last October) came from. I believe the thinking is that DNT: 0 doesn't just mean "not DNT:1" because of the group's decision to have a tri-part choice: DNT:1, DNT:0 and the lack of a DNT signal.

This signal indicates explicit consent for data collection, retention, processing, disclosure, and use by the recipient of this signal to provide a personalized experience for the user. This recommendation places no restrictions on data collected from requests received with DNT: 0."
> Rationale: it's not agreed that this is what DNT:0 means, especially as we've not agreed what DNT:1 means. And whatever DNT:0 means should just be "not DNT:1." Personalization is not, in and of itself, the issue.
