Vinay,

I generally supportive but it seems odd to define the concept of "collection" through the lens of "retention" (retain) in that those were expected to be different definitions.

Subject: Consolidated Proposal for Definition of Collect

Hi Working Group,

David S, Lee and I have been trying to consolidate our change proposals over the definition of 'collect'.  We felt we were initially close with our different proposals, and after a few emails, we are all comfortable with the following language:

"A party collects data if it receives data within a network interaction and either shares that data with another party or retains that data after the network interaction is complete."

This language is dependent on having a definition of network interaction (Issue-228).  With that, I believe we are all comfortable removing our initial change proposals for collect  I believe this removes David's change proposal around 'retain', but it does not effect Lee's.  Lee's change proposal for 'retains' is the only alternative text to the Editor's draft.  I also believe that this encompasses Jonathan's proposal (but have not verified that with him).  David/Lee - let me know if I got that wrong.

I'm going to work with Lee, Amy and Chris P to see if we can combine some of the change proposals around 'share'.
