Comment on attachment 9068081 [details] Data review for spoc shim My review is below. This needs to be escalated to legal due to: (1) new id included, (2) potential category 3 data, and (3) 3rd-party collection tool. 1) Is there or will there be documentation that describes the schema for the ultimate data set available publicly, complete and accurate? * PR: https://github.com/mozilla/activity-stream/pull/5064/files#diff-f92d07e23fd9de1eb2f4ad96bd041287 * Data Dictionary: https://github.com/mozilla/activity-stream/blob/258b3ad76d5284c87ef209d9b2c5aaddfffc8113/docs/v2-system-addon/data_dictionary.md 2) Is there a control mechanism that allows the user to turn the data collection on and off? The user can opt-out the data collection by either disabling the telemetry of Activity Stream or disabling the Firefox telemetry as a whole. You could also opt out of sponsored content, and it would no longer send any pings related to sponsored content, including the shim. Also if you turned off Activity Stream or Discovery Stream, it would also opt out. 3) If the request is for permanent data collection, is there someone who will monitor the data over time? The Pocket ad ops team (Lillian Bui) and analytics (Kirill Demtchouk) will monitor this data over time. 4) Using the category system of data types on the Mozilla wiki, what collection type of data do the requested measurements fall under? This could be considered either Category 2 or Category 3 data. It is data about the loading of and interactions with the Firefox new tab page, but the impressions and clicks do imply web activity. 5) Is the data collection request for default-on or default-off? Default on. 6) Does the instrumentation include the addition of any new identifiers (whether anonymous or otherwise; e.g., username, random IDs, etc. See the appendix for more details)? Yes, click and impression events will now include a "shim", which is a base64 encoded id unique to the impression from the Ad server. 7) Is the data collection covered by the existing Firefox privacy notice? Unsure. 8) Does there need to be a check-in in the future to determine whether to renew the data? No, this is a technical requirement of the Ad server to work. It needs it to properly serve sponsored content and must be continued as long as the ad server is used. 9) Does the data collection use a third-party collection tool? Yes, AdZerk will generate the shim, and receive it in anonymized click and impression events.
