Tony, I hear what you're saying, but I have the feeling that tiers doesn't translate exactly as "third-party"in this context. For example: "party: 4. a particular individual : person <an old party approaching 80>"

agree  Tony M: You've convinced me; I can see why the idea of a third party might be better rendered in FR by using the 'third' bit, while the 'party' bit is used in the EN. Congratulations on your knowledge and research!

  -> It appears to be a specific database management term, without "third". Example: 'Provided-by' is meaningful in particular cases when the creator of a location object wants to designate a particular system or party within a complex administration.

Données de base - qu'est-ce?

Trois domaines principaux doivent être considérés dans la gestion de données de base : Tiers, Lieu et Objet.

Tiers est une personne physique ou morale (ex. client, fournisseur, employé) dont les données sont traitées dans les processus d'affaires de votre organisation. Un Tiers peut exercer multiples rôles, par exemple être un client et un fournisseur.

Definition of "party data":
Customer or "party" data is the information stored in databases and managed by business applications that describe the individuals, groups of people and legal entities you do business with. Party data includes the facts that characterize a single party, the keys that link different sets of facts that describe the same party in the real world and the relationships between parties and business accounts. Parties are often referred to by the type of relationship they have to a business account, such as "owner" of a financial account, "subscriber" to a telecommunication service or "member" of a healthcare plan.
