Hi Team,

I tried to edit the proposed inputs that built on each other and were 
largely complementary into a cohesive overall text.
I have taken the base text, added options (2), (4),  and (5). ((4) 
should also satisfy (7)

My goal for the call is to further change this text into a consensus 
proposal. If this is not possible, we should aim for a complete 
alternative text to go into the CfO.



(from (3):) A *party* is a natural person, a legal entity, or a set of 
legal entities that share common owner(s), common controller(s), and a 
group identity that is easily discoverable by a user.  (from (2):) 
Parties MUST provide transparency about what affiliates 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.

      First Party

(from (4)): Within the context of a given user action, a *first party* 
is a party with which the user intends to interact, via one or more 
network interactions, as a result of making that action. Merely hovering 
over, muting, pausing, or closing a given piece of content does not 
constitute a user's intent to interact with another party.

(from (0):) In most network interactions, there will be only one first 
party with which the user intends to interact. (from (4):) In some 
cases, a resource on the Web will be jointly controlled by two or more 
distinct parties. Each of those parties is considered a first party if a 
user would reasonably expect to communicate with all of them when 
accessing that resource. For example, prominent co-branding on the 
resource might lead a user to expect that multiple parties are 
responsible for the content or functionality.

(from (0)): NOTE: The party that owns and operates or has control over a 
branded or labeled embedded widget, search box, or similar service with 
which a user intentionally interacts is also considered a first party. 
If a user merely mouses over, closes, or mutes such content, that is not 
sufficient interaction to render the party a first party.

      Third Party

(from (5):) For any data collected as a result of one or more network 
interactions resulting from a user's action, a *third party* is any 
party other than that user, a first party for that user action, or a 
service provider acting on behalf of either that user or that first party.
