Proposal: Compliance definition of "not tracking"
A party may claim that it is not tracking, if it:
1) only collects identifying data which is strictly necessary to answer the user's HTTP request and to fulfill it's contractual obligation towards the user
2) does not send, collect or check for unique identifiers
3) does not correlate the data of a DNT HTTP request with any other data
4) deletes the identifying data as soon as the original purpose is fulfilled
Current draft of the Compliance document has no text on this topic. From the TPE Editors' draft:
A tracking status value of N means the origin server claims that the designated resource does not perform tracking of any kind, not even for a permitted use, and does not make use of any data collected from tracking.
