Process Proposal  ​- It’s A Big Problem, How Will We Proceed?

1)  Identify use cases:
          a)  Consumption profiling for personalized advertising
          b)  Electric appliances for replacement incentives
          c)  Television consumption for content recommendations ​

2)  Isolate data sets needed to satisfy use cases:
Identify the minimum data elements needed to satisfy the use case. The object is to collect and hold no more data than is essential for the authorized purpose.

3)  Describe data collection methodology & anticipated precision:
This step sets expectation among data suppliers as to the correct method for collecting data when the intent is to permit data to be used by authorized third parties.  Precision provides information to data consumers about the probability that this data will represent the represented event and to certification groups trying to assess if the data collector has succeeded.    

4)  Describe privacy and security mechanisms required:
Describe the privacy and security mechanisms & policies that compliant systems must implement to correctly handle this data.  This should cover data during collection, at rest, in transmission, etc.​  This also includes ecosystem elements.

5)  Describe compliance testing:
Compliant systems will be authorized to display consumer facing logos indicating that they observe best known practices for data privacy and security.  Periodic compliance testing will be conducted according to agreed norms.

6)  Transparency mechanism development:
Dashboards and notification mechanisms will be developed that permit consumers to set and modify approvals for data collection or to place themselves on a do not tracklist. They should be able to submit data corrections where factual inaccuracies exist.
