Mike, John and I have had a fruitful discussion, which resulted in a
more precise wording of what I wanted to achieve and I have updated the
text accordingly to:

"... the third party MUST NOT use data gathered in another context about
the user, other than with their explicit consent or for permitted uses
as defined within this recommendation."

I feel this is a make-or-break issue for the compliance specification
which on top of the privacy issue also has competition implications. A
strong separation between 1st and 3rd party roles is a must for this
compliance specification to be credible.

 Walter
