Dear Jean-Michel, 

I think, if you don't collect any personal information, you could
express that in P3P and your method would work again. IE6 is only 
rejecting third party cookies, that have no P3P-Policy. But IE6
only looks into compact-policies, which have a very reduced

I suggest therefor, that you consider implementing P3P on your
site. I also suggest to implement full policies for the
user-agents to come. You can even contact your data-commissioner,
who might help you implementing.

Is their a way IE6 can allow cookies from third party without looking at
privacy preferences from the users? I m working in the media field and to
mesure sites traffic we need to work with cookies. IE 6 will not allow it.
How can we do if we want to continue our work? The objetcive is not to work
on profiles but on sites traffic. I don't see the problem with privacy at a
user level. Sites are working with us but we wan't be able to put cookies

Thanks in advance for you help.
