We discuss different operator definitions of the transverse-momentum dependent (TMD) parton densities from the point of view of their renormalization-group (RG) properties and UV evolution. We also consider the structure of the gauge links (Wilson lines) in these operator definitions and examine the role of the soft factor in the factorization formula within the TMD approach to semi-inclusive processes.
