17:19:28 [npdoty]
is there concern over ambiguity on "ordinary user"?
17:19:34 [npdoty]
A "party" is any commercial, nonprofit, or governmental organization, a subsidiary or unit of such an organization, or a person, that an ordinary user would perceive to be a discrete entity for purposes of information collection and sharing. Domain names, branding, and corporate ownership may contribute to, but are not necessarily determinative of, user perceptions of whether two parties are distinct.
17:19:53 [hwest]
No more concern than 'reasonable' and similarly vague words
17:19:55 [tl]
npdoty, it's an analogue of the "reasonable person" legal standard
17:19:57 [fielding]
17:20:05 [johnsimpson]

"that an ordinary user would perceive" needs to be validated through some sort of survey process

4.2.1 Overview
18:11:02 [aleecia]
We draw a distinction between those parties an ordinary user would or would not expect to share information with, "first parties" and "third parties" respectively. The delineation exists for three reasons.
18:11:02 [johnsimpson]
Moving to Section 4.2
18:11:14 [aleecia]
First, when a user expects to share information with a party, she can often exercise control over the information flow. Take, for example, Example Social, a popular social network. The user may decide she does not like Example Social's privacy or security practices, so she does not visit But if Example Social provides a social sharing widget embedded in another website, the user may be unaware she is giving information to Example Social and u
18:11:14 [aleecia]
to exercise control over the information flow.
18:11:27 [aleecia]
Second, we recognize that market pressures are an important factor in encouraging good privacy and security practices. If users do not expect that they will share information with an organization, it is unlikely to experience market pressure from users to protect the security and privacy of their information. In practice, moreover, third parties may not experience sufficient market pressure from first parties since increasingly third parties do not have a direc
18:11:27 [aleecia]
business relationship with the first party websites they appear on. We therefore require a greater degree of user control over information sharing with such organizations.
18:11:39 [aleecia]
Last, third parties are often in a position to collect a sizeable proportion of a user's browsing history – information that can be uniquely sensitive and easily associated with a user's identity. We wish to provide user control over such information flows.
18:11:43 [johnsimpson]
Don't want to reopen "what is tracking debate", but want to list our concerns
18:11:55 [aleecia]
We recognize that, unlike with a bright-line rule, there can be close calls in applying our standard for what constitutes a first party or a third party. But we believe that in practice, such close calls will be rare. The overwhelming majority of content on the web can be classified as first party or third party, with few cases of ambiguity in practice.
18:11:56 [pedermagee]
pedermagee has joined #dnt
18:12:11 [aleecia]
We require a confidence at a "high probability" before a party can consider itself a first party. Where there is reasonable ambiguity about whether a user has intentionally interacted with a party, it must consider itself a third party. Our rationale is that, in the rare close cases, a website is in the best position to understand its users' expectations. We therefore impose the burden of understanding user expectations on the website. We also wish, in close ca
18:12:11 [aleecia]
to err on the side of conforming to user expectations and protecting user privacy. If the standard is insufficiently protective, ordinary users have limited recourse; if the standard imposes excessive limits, websites retain the safety valve of explicitly asking for user permission.
18:12:43 [jmayer]
After moving through the document, it would be helpful to hear where people are - is this close to consensus?
18:12:48 [johnsimpson]
Aleecia: Have reasons why not technical definition
18:13:06 [aleecia]
4.2.3 Multiple First Parties
18:13:07 [aleecia]
There will almost always be only one party that the average user would expect to communicate with: the provider of the website the user has visited. But, in rare cases, users may expect that a website is provided by more than one party. For example, suppose Example Sports, a well known sports league, collaborates with Example Streaming, a well known streaming video website, to provide content at The website is prominentl
18:13:07 [aleecia]
advertised and branded as being provided by both Example Sports and Example Streaming. An ordinary user who visits the website may recognize that it is operated by both Example Sports and Example Streaming.
18:13:21 [aleecia]
4.2.4 User Interaction with Third-Party Content
18:13:22 [aleecia]
A party may start out as a third party but become a first party later on, after a user interacts with it. If content from a third party is embedded on a first party page, the third party may become an additional first party if it can infer with high probability that the average user knowingly and intentionally communicated with it. If a user merely moused over, closed, or muted third-party content, the party would not be able to draw such an inference.
18:13:40 [WileyS]
Not close until Corporate Ownership and Affiliates are addressed in a more reasonable manner. I believe a "reasonably discoverable" standard should be set here.
18:13:49 [WileyS]
That was to JMayer's question...
18:14:31 [jmayer]
"addressed in a more reasonable manner" = ?
18:14:51 [clp]
Why "average user" here rather than "reasonable" or "ordinary" ?

Shane: Jonathan asked if close to consensus. We can't be close until corporate and affilitiate status are addressed...
18:15:08 [tedleung]
18:15:10 [jmayer]
clp, tried to be clear that this is objective and, if necessary, testable.
18:15:21 [tedleung]
(speaking for Disney)
18:15:45 [johnsimpson]
... ESP and Disney are is an acceptable approach...
18:15:46 [jmayer]
Shane, can you expand that example?
18:16:14 [npdoty]
18:16:45 [johnsimpson]
Aleecia -- If user and visit ESP, but no branding you're saying OK...
18:16:57 [justin]
18:17:11 [fielding]
what are we trying to protect by this definition? why does it matter that ESPN and other sites are owned by Disney?
18:17:19 [johnsimpson]
Aleecia: Nielsen says 100 unique sites a day for average
18:17:21 [jmayer]
So Disney's position is that, even if users don't understand that ESPN is owned by Disney, ESPN should be able to share data with Disney?
18:17:29 [npdoty]
18:17:35 [clp]
May be because of images, ads, also loaded with a page? one page can be 12-15 entities?
18:17:51 [bryan]
Does that metric include images pulled into email readers etc? Otherwise the number seems way high to me also.
18:17:51 [dsinger]
even if the vast majority of sites I visit each day are ones I have visited before, there's no way I am going to research the corporate structure of ANY site I visit, let alone work out which ones I am visiting for the first time!!
18:17:55 [johnsimpson]
Aleecia: You're putting burden on user to discover the affiliations...
18:17:55 [jmayer]
Reject this repeated claim about "users who care." The burden should not be on users.
18:17:55 [aleecia]
(Aleecia to find Neilsen data for Shane on # unique sites per day)
18:18:15 [fielding]
jmayer, why not?
18:18:35 [johnsimpson]
Shane: need to figure out a way to have a best practice for discoverable affiliation.
18:18:42 [laurengelman]
This is a list of assets owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation: so they are covered for sharing ampong all of these as first-party?
18:19:00 [jmayer]
Because they're in a terrible position to learn about and understand corporate relationships, as against a company that can use domains, branding, marketing, slogans, etc.
18:19:15 [johnsimpson]
Shane: trying to figure our where gaining consensus
18:19:16 [justin]
I just clicked on 20 links on and didn't see anything about Disney at all in those links. THE LINKS THAT A USER WOULD REASONABLY GO TO (stories about sports)
18:19:23 [justin]

18:19:33 [jmayer]
18:19:34 [Chris]
18:19:36 [fielding]
sure, but why does it matter which funnel is used to give data to Disney? Disney still has the data.
18:19:39 [tl]

18:19:48 [npdoty]
sharvey: +1
18:20:03 [johnsimpson]
-1 strongly disagree
18:20:07 [vincent]
we have to click on the link "learn more" first, meaning that I have to intereact with ESPN before I actually know it belongs to Disney
18:20:34 [justin]
WileyS, given the typical ESPN browsing experience, how can you say that I am intentionally or even knowingly sharing data with Disney?
18:20:37 [bryan]
The way the question was phrased implies an inordinate amount of effort to research the relationship - I don't think that was the intent of the discoverability assertion.
18:20:46 [tedleung]
I don't have a prescription for a solution
18:20:50 [johnsimpson]
Shane: I see this as an area where we will polarize as group.
18:20:59 [dsinger]
I really hope we can find a non-polarized consensus!
18:21:03 [tedleung]
but we definitely have concerns around the current language re: branding
18:21:06 [jmayer]
Another important safety valve for erring on the side of multiple parties - websites can ask for an exception.
18:21:14 [jmayer]
If a website decides it's a first party, the user is out of luck
18:21:44 [justin]
Why isn't branding the non-polarizing middle ground? Yahoo/Flickr are co-parties, but ESPN/Disney isn't because there's no branding where any ordinary user would see it?
18:21:47 [justin]
18:21:52 [justin]
18:21:53 [fielding]
18:21:57 [johnsimpson]
Aleecia: I think everyone understands there is a need to send data. I think need to have understanding of data flows when DNT is on.
18:22:00 [bryan]
18:22:01 [aleecia]
ack fielding
18:22:02 [tedleung]
it's a good example. I'm not taking it personally
18:22:08 [WileyS]
"no understanding" is strong - many could argue users willingfully "dont want to understand" hence the low privacy policy reading rates
18:22:23 [aleecia]
Shane, how would I know what I don't know?
18:22:49 [aleecia]
What you suggest is that users would have to pay attention to corp ownership for each site they visit
18:22:51 [jmayer]
roy, users might care about what part of Disney gets data, who it can share it with, how it can use it, ...
18:22:54 [Zakim]
- +1.760.705.aagg
18:22:58 [johnsimpson]
Roy: If the concern of the user is being provided to corporations they don't know about. What I care about is not how data gets to Disney, but if they have it.
18:22:58 [aleecia]
And make decisions based on this
18:23:13 [aleecia]
It's like we're reinventing the privacy policy problem
18:23:26 [jmayer]
aleecia, +INT_MAX
18:23:29 [aleecia]
It's not the users don't care, it's that the burden for reading privpols is way too high
18:23:35 [jmayer]
We've tried putting the burden on users. It doesn't work.
18:23:49 [WileyS]
There has to be a middle ground
18:24:05 [johnsimpson]
Roy: Like to find easy definition of what trying to protect against...
18:24:05 [aleecia]
I hope so
18:24:19 [justin]
WileyS, "don't want to understand" isn't fair --- it's not economically rational for users to click through privacy policies to try to figure out what's going on --- they're not useful document for users
18:24:20 [laurengelman]
This plan purposely favors large companies over small one. It permits a company with multiple entities to create profiles and prevents small companies with one or few sites from doing so.
18:24:20 [aleecia]
Use case of hospital and insurance company
18:25:05 [johnsimpson]
Brian: discoverable is related to what is a good example...
18:25:10 [WileyS]
Justin - many companies have invested heavily to make their privacy centers "useful" to users - so a blanket statement here doesn't feel fair
18:25:16 [npdoty]
18:25:22 [tedleung]
18:25:32 [aleecia]
ack bryan
18:25:47 [jmayer]
Shane, companies have been working on improving privacy transparency. But it has real limits. Can't pretend that better website design will solve the problem.
18:25:49 [justin]
WileyS, the average privacy policy is not worth a user clicking on
18:26:06 [johnsimpson]
Bryan: Things are more discoverable than they seem; just need examples.
18:26:29 [Zakim]
18:26:30 [WileyS]

All of this boils down to User Education
18:27:15 [dsinger]
- thinks 'discoverable' is a lot less important than 'evident', and (like before) something that is NOT easily discoverable is prima facie, not evident :-)
18:27:15 [WileyS]
Branding, Data Collection / Use Practices, etc.
18:27:25 [aleecia]
If you can solve user education, you're first on my holiday gift list :-)

Ted: We are a bigger company; for smaller companies it's a much tougher problem. When read so many other parts of spec in flux... hard to know what will work...
18:28:28 [johnsimpson]

Final note: We should be able to reach consensus on what is discoverable (in terms of branding relationships) by an average user through consideration of typical examples from our public websites and services. I believe that average users can typically find out with one or two clicks whether content presented on a site is sourced by an affiliate of the 1st party (and not thus a 3rd party). I recommend that group members provide such examples to determine how easy
