5) Team Issues and showstoppers discussion

OpenConsent raised an issue:

The result is that there is no PII. Controller name in a receipt produced spec an viewed in the viewer.

From OC -viewer conformance input - The spec does not clearly differentiate between child objects (or values) and their parents. Thus the spec defines piiController as an array. What it then does is list a number of other fields WITHOUT indicating that they are a grouped object that is what is in the array.
From what I can tell 4.4.2 (line 319) refers to an array, this array is comprised of objects (i.e. more than one field) which is made of 4.4.3 - 4.4.9 (lines 323 to 358).
However in the spec there are simply a long list of fields with no indication as to which are children of others. 4.4.10 (line 359) for example, has no indication as to whether it is a part of the piiController object (4.4.3 - 4.4.9) or is a sibling of piiControllers (4.4.2)

piiController - should an array of piiController objects - and this should be explicity stated in the spec

piiController should not be a string, neither should service or purpose - these fields should also be reviewed to be an object .. Might also have a name field (or description field in the object that is a string.

  • Call notes on the issue:
    • The Page 16 content is a JSON Schema, not an example
    • The issue is resolved - no changes required to the spec
    • An example JSON file would be helpful, especially if there are joint controllers

  • Colin - UK ICO grant funding proposal call is open now - AdUnity, OpenConsent interested in this
    • Colin was on the bidders call earlier this week

      I (Andrew) quickly reviewed the Grant info linked above, and I think there might be a fit.

      The possible research topic and solution might be:
      - purposes categories and examples for one or more industry verticals
      - use of consent receipts to inform data subjects of their ongoing rights
      - surveys of opinions of use of consent as a justification for data processing
      - research into standardization of consent management (including market surveys to document current practices)

      Submission deadline is August 17.

  • Q: in the spec, Services is described as a 'business service'. But these days, companies are describing this as a 'category of business purposes'.
    • A: 'Service' is the name and description of the service - an unspecified field - mainly for humans
    • A: 'Purpose category' is to describe the business service purposes
    • A: If there is a Service with the same Purposes and the same Data as anonther Service, then they are indistinguishable.
  • Q: How are we envisioning asking the 'do you consent to this' question?
    • A: The Notice part of the flows have not been worked out yet in this group, deliberately.
  • Q: Have we decided on what format/location/interface will be recommended for the 'exported' CRs?
    • A: Right now, it's files in the Downloads folder (or a user-selected folder) - the 'real' discussion about this will be deferred until after the demo in August.
  • Q: How does COEL spec relate to the IETF secevent RFC?
  • mydata session - Joss
    • OneTrust, Nixu, JLINC, Kantara
    • Andrew asked for 20 minutes for the demo
    • Joss suggests that the Kantara demo goes last then transitions to Q&A for all
    • Q: Are there special provisions needed on the mydata web site to help people interact with the demo?
    • Need to focus the mydata demo presentation to trigger 'delivery' and action instead of 'interest'
