Thanks for the replies - v. helpful leads.

The reason I raise the question is that I consult and write about affiliate
marketing.

The entire 'affiliate' industry is dependent upon cookies unyet there is
zero awareness on this topic amongst those operating programs or it appears
the technology providers providing affiliate tracking technology.

I'm trying to work out exactly what effect this will have throughout and
what actions affiliate merchants and solution providers need to take.

I shall read through all the resources supplied, which I hope will answer my
questions. Key points I need to establish is:

1/ Confirm that without a p3p policy a p3p-client will reject cookie.

2/ Circumstances surrounding 1st and 3rd party cookies. ie. I operate an
affiliate program utilising a third party ASP solution. In this case would
both my site AND the solution provider who writes the cookie need to be p3p
compliant?

Thanks
Neil Durrant
