Firefox/Data Collection

"privacy review" is a historically-laden word. Try "analysis" instead.
It is our intention to review every new data collection within Firefox, but to do so quickly and with minimal overhead. For every new measurement, even a simple new Telemetry probe, please request approval by setting the NEEDINFO flag for the module owner or a peer. Simple requests should be handled within a day.
More complex requests, and especially requests which add a new kind of data collection mechanism or require changes to the privacy notice, will require more extensive review. Please consider pinging the team about these as they are being designed! Additional discussions/review may include:
* Formal privacy reviewPrivacy analysis: This may involve requesting feedback from the mailing list and/or scheduling a meeting with privacy experts within and outside of Mozilla to discuss the feature and its privacy impact.* Data compliance review: a review with the Mozilla data compliance team to ensure that changes match the Mozilla data compliance policies and documents.
* Legal review: If necessary, the module owner will request a legal review from Mozilla's legal team. A legal review will be necessary for any changes to the privacy policies/notices.
* Data quality/statistical review: In cases where data analysis and quality is uncertain, the module owner will request additional feedback from the Mozilla metrics team and other experts to validate data analysis plans.
* UX review: We may request/require feedback from the Firefox UX team on any proposed privacy/data-control UI.
