     46    3. Building our Privacy Policy Collectively project
     48 It is a project to promote a process that could engage our members in the analysis of the needs and threats that our association faces in the legal field, defining responsibilities and rights in the relations members-association and members-association-third parties.
     50 From [wiki:/dmca recent experiences], we see how the law is designed in a way that denies to the core team of our Association the possibility of facing some legal threats in agreement with the member (or members) involved. And in the worst cases even put our Association as an entity that eventually could act against our members interest, for example, some scenarios include denying our right to inform our members about requests on their data. The strategy of creating collectively our Privacy Policy could bring awareness about the isolation that our legal representatives face in cases like when resisting authorities requests of records from a member.
     52 Given the progressive profile of our membership, once defined, the Privacy Policy could eventually be a public statement on how we process DMCA demands, other take down and data retention requests, disclosure of members information and so on; and how we seek systematically transparency on such a requests and promote public discussion about the political implications involved.
     54 Some of the important goals we would pursue with this strategy, after collectively building our Privacy Policy with our members, are to promote the public support to it in order have a stronger political backup when hard times come and, from the legal perspective, eventually use it as a tool in a court, in case we need to justify the rights of our members in our Association or why we tend to resist the isolation conditions defined by the public policies and by law that in some cases put perversely our Association in one side an our members in the other.
     56 After discussing this with EFF, we came to the conclusion that building collectively our Privacy Policy will need a close companion of lawyers that would be able to orientate the discussion in order to avoid false expectations and to provide light on the different interest involved in such an statement.
     58 We are seeking legal companion in solidarity to this project
