  • It will be good if MCDC can give a title for Privacy section as it is one of the main point for both both Online and Offline privacy for the Users.


  • Suggestion: It will be good if we have more clarity on Hubs and Global council. For this purpose, MCDC needs to prepare definitions of Global council and Hubs.
  • Suggestion: Technical community members also are to be included in MCDC. Since the technology changes day by day, we need to have reflection of technical aspects as well rather than legal policies.
