Dear Rigo,

Thanks a lot for giving an answer so quikly.

My problem comes to the fact we are producing cookies for a network of
sites. I don't know if the best way, according to our servers and regarding
to the technique used by the P3P and IE6 to check the compliant policy, for
me is to provide our policy from partners sites of my network or from my
side. I'm afraid to se my traffic growing so fast my servers could explode
;-). In an other side, I think to put the policy on the partners sites
could delay the cookie process and the procedure of my work.

Do you think P3P policy could evolve quikly or are we going to wait IE7
before next upgrate?

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.
