4.1. Privacy Terminology – draft-hansen-privacy-terminology

Hannes reported that version -03 of draft-hansen-privacy-terminology has been posted. The board discussed whether this document is appropriate for publishing on the IAB track, and ultimately gained consensus that it is.

4.2. Privacy Considerations – draft-iab-privacy-considerations

Alissa reported on the current state of draft-iab-privacy-considerations. The board discussed whether inclusion of a privacy considerations section should be left to the discretion of authors or should be an IESG decision.
