Dear Bastiaan, all

Thanks Alan (and Haidia?) for this draft,

On the geographic differentiation am more inclined towards maintaining our
request for it to be discussed at phase2. During the early discussion of
phase 1,  a few members of the ePDP including (ALAC) made an attempt to
push for a scenario where we use this opportunity to address (or provide a
foundation for) a system that will not only address GDPR but also address
other privacy related laws that may spring up from other parts of the
world. There was a significant push back from the contracted side
(including NCSG) strongly(and rightly so) insisting that this was an
exercise solely meant for GDPR. I then wonder why the ePDP would want to
apply the GDPR globally when it in "theory/practice" does not
"protect/affect" the global users.

So I think and believe that we still need to make that distinction and
differentiation. If that differentiation exist then it will be easier to
evaluate the effect of GDPR with regards to data of users "protected" by it
and those who are not and perhaps it will help appreciate the good/bad of
the GDPR syndrome. An attempt to apply a regional policy to global users
should not be supported by ALAC.

That said, I will suggest that the security point being enumerated under
the geographic differentiation(from the moreover paragraph) should perhaps
be assigned a sub heading as it's an important point that needs to be
maintained even if we decide not to keep the geographic differentiation

PS: Unless otherwise stated, my views here are always as an end user and
not representative of the views of any other hats I may wear.
