Hi Mike,

On a recent call, you had expressed some concern about one of my edits. In particular, I believe it was this one, about using “that party” instead of “the first party” in this sentence on compliance as a first party to a given user action.

[In the diff format below, the paragraph with the “-“ in front of it is removed, with a “+” added.]

My thinking was that this didn’t change the meaning of the sentence, but just used the more comfortable demonstrative adjective. Does using “that party” imply that data may be shared with a different set of parties?

Would “that first party” address your concern?

Thanks,
Nick
