Hi Matthias,


Other than a service provider acting on behalf of the user (third-party
definition) is a new one. I thought the definition of a service provider
meant they were acting in the shoes of the first-party i.e. a data processor
only acting on behalf of, and under contract with, a data controller. Acting
on behalf of the user seems too broad, what use-case would it refer too?

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

(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.
