Description Rigo Wenning 2003-11-19 02:48:43 UTC
The service-provider has implemented a compensation policy for disputes
arising in connection with the privacy statement.

We discussed the fact, that compensation doesn't mean necessarily to
also correct the errors involved with a dispute or violation of the
policy. In order to express that errors will also be corrected, 
<money> and <correct> would have to be present in the policy. We felt, 
that we should add some explanation to the specification. 

From 5 november minutes
Comment 1 Rigo Wenning 2003-11-27 10:21:09 UTC
Old proposals were:
If the service provider violates its privacy policy it will pay the individual 
an amount specified in the human readable privacy policy or the amount of 
damages. DS: PROPOSAL 1: [Change the subelement name to "compensate."]
PROPOSAL 2: If the service-provider violates its privacy policy, it will 
compensate the individual according to the terms specified in the human-readable 
privacy policy.

We decided not to change the element name <money /> for compatibility-reasons
Comment 2 Rigo Wenning 2003-12-15 09:03:19 UTC
Consensus at the 3 december meeting:
"We will compensate individuals if it is determined that we have violated our 
privacy policy."
Comment 3 Rigo Wenning 2004-01-22 13:17:48 UTC
current text in the spec:
The entity has implemented a compensation policy for disputes arising in 
conection with the privacy statement.
