Use of context in the definition of tracking

The term context is currently used in the TPE definition of tracking, which was the result of the Call for Objections in December 2013.

Tracking is the collection of data regarding a particular user's activity across multiple distinct contexts and the retention, use, or sharing of data derived from that activity outside the context in which it occurred.

Proposal 1 - Related to party

Initial text proposal by Roy Fielding, who was the author of the definition above::

"For the purpose of this definition, a context is a set of resources that share the same data controller, same privacy policy, and a common branding, such that a user would expect that data collected by one of those resources is available to all other resources within the same context."
