I said that I want to keep the introduction because people who are not in this WG haven't the faintest clue what we are doing and why, as is abundantly clear from the latest PR flash. I am happy to edit it to reflect the group's goals.
17:16:12 [WileyS]
Roy, great - then I believe we're all on the same page - simply editting/cutting down the current text.
17:16:19 [rigo]
Shane, the intention of my democracy para was just of explanatory nature. I have no issue whatsoever if this is going into an explanatory notice
17:16:33 [aleecia_]
thanks for offering Roy, but it looks like we have this covered

Roy, it is already unclear what meaning means here
17:17:54 [rigo]
so I'm not really enthusiastic about your requirement
17:18:02 [npdoty]
aleecia: start with the compliance doc, and if it works, we can use something similar in the TPE doc

A "first party" is any party, in a specific network interaction, that can infer with high probability that the user knowingly and intentionally communicated with it. Otherwise, a party is a third party.

17:36:30 [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 prominent
17:36:30 [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.

A "network interaction" is an HTTP request and response, or any other set of logically related network traffic.

17:43:43 [aleecia_]
3.4.2 Non-Normative Discussion
17:43:43 [aleecia_]
Determination of a party's status is limited to a single interaction because a party's status may be affected by time, context, or any other factor that influences user expectations.

3.5 Transactional data
17:45:16 [aleecia_]
Transactional data is information about the user's interactions with various websites, services, or widgets which could be used to create a record of a user’s system information, online communications, transactions and other activities, including websites visited, pages and ads viewed, purchases made, etc.

3.6 Data collection, retention, use, and sharing
17:46:05 [aleecia_]
A party "collects" data if the data comes within its control.
17:46:05 [aleecia_]
A party "retains" data if data remains within a party's control.
17:46:06 [aleecia_]
A party "uses" data if the party processes the data for any purpose other than storage.
17:46:06 [aleecia_]
A party "shares" data if the party enables another party to collect the data.
17:46:06 [aleecia_]
The definitions of collection, retention, use, and sharing are drafted expansively so as to comprehensively cover a party's user-information practices. These definitions do not require a party's intent; a party may inadvertently collect, retain, use, or share data. The definition of collection includes information that a party did not cause to be transmitted, such as protocol headers.

I think we've been using these definitions pretty successfully in discussion

3.7 Tracking
17:47:08 [johnsimpson]

17:47:09 [aleecia_]
Tracking is the collection or use of user data via either a unique identifier or a correlated set of data points being used to approximate a unique identifier, in a context other than "first party" as defined in this document. This includes:
17:47:09 [aleecia_]
a party collecting data across multiple websites, even if it is a first party in one or more (but not all) of the multiple contexts
17:47:09 [aleecia_]
a third party collecting data on a given website
17:47:10 [aleecia_]
a first party sharing user data collected from a DNT-on user with third parties "after the fact".

17:48:32 [aleecia_]
3.8 Consent
17:48:33 [aleecia_]
The term “affirmative, informed consent” is used throughout this document. While this terminology may ultimately be modified, some options for explaining the underlying idea are presented below:
17:48:33 [aleecia_]
17:48:33 [aleecia_]
"Affirmative, Informed Consent to be Tracked" means consent given by an affirmative action such as clicking a consent box in response to a clear and prominent request to ignore a "Do Not Track" setting that is distinct and separate from any other notifications or requested permissions.
17:48:37 [aleecia_]
"Affirmative, Informed Consent to be Tracked" has been obtained when a mechanism to provide for or facilitate the acquisition and storage of permission to ignore the header has been made available to the user and the user has meaningfully interacted with the mechanism in a way that makes clear her intent to grant this permission.
17:48:39 [npdoty]
aleecia: anything else needed for 3.7? (nothing raised)
17:48:40 [aleecia_]
No definition, leaving the definition of consent to local rules.
17:49:09 [aleecia_]
box in blue for options
17:49:21 [npdoty]
aleecia: need to box these for options, but are there other options beyond these three?
17:49:30 [aleecia_]
3.9 Meaningful Interaction
17:49:31 [aleecia_]
"Meaningful Interaction" with a widget or window initially presented on a third-party basis means affirmatively clicking on such content (except to stop, close, silence, or otherwise impair the rendering of such content) or otherwise engaging with the content in a manner that would reasonably be interpreted to express an intention to interact with that party. A user merely moving her cursor across the widget or window does not constitute "meaningful interactio

I cannot get back into call!!

17:51:08 [aleecia_]
issue-69 Should the spec say anything about minimal notice? (ie. don't bury in a privacy policy)
17:51:51 [npdoty]
"informed consent" often brings those two points (notice and consent) together
17:51:53 [justin]
Option 1 says "yes" to 69, Option 3 says "no"

3. Determining User Preference
18:07:16 [aleecia_]
The goal of this protocol is to allow a user to express their personal preference regarding tracking to each server and web application that they communicate with via HTTP, thereby allowing each service to either adjust their behavior to meet the user's expectations or reach a separate agreement with the user to satisfy all parties.
18:07:16 [aleecia_]
Key to that notion of expression is that it must reflect the user's preference, not the preference of some institutional or network-imposed mechanism outside the user's control. Although some controlled network environments, such as public access terminals or managed corporate intranets, might impose restrictions on the use or configuration of installed user agents, such that a user might only have access to user agents with a predetermined preference enabled,
18:07:17 [aleecia_]
user is at least able to choose whether to make use of those user agents. In contrast, if a user brings their own Web-enabled device to a library or cafe with wireless Internet access, the expectation will be that their chosen user agent and personal preferences regarding Web site behavior will not be altered by the network environment, aside from blanket limitations on what sites can or cannot be accessed through that network.
18:07:18 [justin]
rigo and npdoty, I don't think dsinger actually wanted a companion report :)
18:07:22 [aleecia_]
The remainder of this specification defines the protocol in terms of whether a tracking preference is enabled or not enabled. We do not specify how that preference is enabled: each implementation is responsible for determining the user experience by which this preference is enabled.
18:07:23 [johnsimpson]
sorry just getting back via cellphone
18:07:27 [aleecia_]
For example, a user might select a check-box in their user agent's configuration, install a plug-in or extension that is specifically designed to add a tracking preference expression, or make a choice for privacy that then implicitly includes a tracking preference (e.g., Privacy settings: high). Likewise, a user might install or configure a proxy to add the expression to their own outgoing requests. For each of these cases, we say that a tracking preference is
18:07:31 [aleecia_]
18:07:44 [aleecia_]
can we note we don't do UI here?
18:07:46 [aleecia_]
18:07:59 [johnsimpson]

Should we note the open issue on site-specific exception header value?
18:08:23 [WileyS]
18:08:32 [fielding]
aleecia_, where?
18:09:01 [aleecia_]
section 3, para starts: "For example, a user might select a check-box in their user agent's configuration, ..."
18:09:05 [justin]
tl, concerns about statement that user isn't expressing preference, but he faded out so I missed the middle
18:09:14 [aleecia_]
I'd like to end that with a note that we don't do UI, as per charter.
18:09:24 [fielding]
but that's just an example
18:09:25 [justin]
tl: second bullet of Section 4 is wrong
18:09:40 [npdoty]
you're suggesting add another bullet: "the user is not expressing a preference"
18:10:03 [dsinger]
the user agent does implement the protocol but there is no user preference expressed.
18:10:19 [aleecia_]
I have no problem with the text as it is for 3 - would just like to add a quick "don't shoot!" :-)
18:10:19 [tl]
at this time.
18:10:33 [aleecia_]
we're discussing:
18:10:35 [aleecia_]
If a tracking preference is not enabled, then no preference is expressed by this protocol. This means that no expression is sent for each of the following cases:
18:10:35 [aleecia_]
the user agent does not implement this protocol; or
18:10:35 [aleecia_]
the user agent does implement the protocol but the user has not yet enabled a preference.
18:10:51 [rigo]
I wonder about the legal difference between both wordings
18:10:52 [aleecia_]
why is that, Tom?
18:10:55 [aleecia_]
not following
18:11:15 [aleecia_]
That would be good to make explicit!
18:11:23 [aleecia_]

(not sure a Y!-specific don't express a pref is interesting)

18:11:58 [schunter]
18:12:14 [justin]
discussion about how specific the expression of preference needs to be (I think)
18:12:15 [rigo]
you're talking the wrong horizon, It is not the user, but what the server understands
18:12:19 [dsinger]
the user agent does implement the protocol but the user does not wish to indicate a preference
18:12:22 [aleecia_]
Tom, could you type some text here of what you'd like?
18:12:39 [aleecia_]

"see section 6"?
18:13:55 [aleecia_]
x-ref to it?
18:14:12 [aleecia_]
If it's hard to read, that's a good reason to x-ref but not duplicate
18:14:32 [WileyS]
Who just spoke?
18:14:44 [dsinger]
but we're talking here about the cases when nothing is sent...
18:14:45 [fielding]
there was an issue marker there a couple days ago
18:14:48 [WileyS]
Didn't catch whatever that last person said

4.3 Plug-In APIs
18:28:25 [aleecia_]
User agents often include user-installable component parts, commonly known as plug-ins or browser extensions, that are capable of making their own network requests. From the user's perspective, these components are considered part of the user agent and thus ought to respect the user's configuration of a tracking preference. However, plug-ins do not normally have read access to the browser configuration. Therefore, we will define here various mechanisms for
18:28:25 [aleecia_]
communicating the tracking preference via common plug-in APIs.
18:28:33 [justin]
4.3 --- no comments from group
18:28:43 [aleecia_]
4.4 Tracking Preference Expressed in Other Protocols
18:28:43 [aleecia_]
A user's tracking preference is intended to apply in general, regardless of the protocols being used for Internet communication. The protocol expressed here is specific to HTTP communication; however, the semantics are not restricted to use in HTTP; the same semantics may be carried by other protocols, either in future revisions of this specification, or in other specifications.
18:28:43 [aleecia_]
When it is known that the user's preference is for no tracking, compliant services are still required to honor that preference, even if other protocols are used. For example, re-directing to another protocol in order to avoid receipt of the header is not compliant.
18:28:46 [schunter]
18:29:05 [aleecia_]
could add, though not sure where off hand
18:29:06 [npdoty]
looks good to me, dsinger
18:29:10 [rigo]
+1 to 4.4
18:29:25 [aleecia_]
David, we could add though off hand i'm not sure where

out of time.
18:29:37 [justin]
dsinger: second para for 4.4 should be in compliance
18:29:50 [fielding]
does that mean we close the issue 108?
18:29:57 [justin]
FWIW, we have a similar para in compliance already, but we should probably make sure they are precisely in accord
18:29:58 [aleecia_]
+1 on both
