Hi Folks

on yesterdays call people asked to we'll add the sensitive data exception so that we do not  force people to keep sensitive data

However we don't force them to keep the data, it's just that if they don't they need to provide a warning about any timeout period.

People need to know how long they have to fill out the form. I do not think that goes away just becuse the data is sensitive.

Unfortunately the Que was closed and I could not comment, so I am not sure how to proceed here

Do we want  the sensitive data exception? 

Also can anyone suggest wording for sensitive data that will not create a huge loophole for everything?

what I have so far is :
sensitive information - information that can put users at risk

issue on github is : https://github.com/w3c/wcag21/issues/14

All the best
