Your policy reference file has a number of problems.

First of all, there is no policy at the address you have
given in your about field. Even if there was a policy,
you owuld need to identify it with a fragment
identifier, as the validator said. What this means
is that the about line should be:

<POLICY-REF about=http://www.1to1.com/w3c/policy.p3p#XXX>
where XXX is the name in the name field of the policy itself
(give it a name without any spaces).

Also I see your include line says:
<INCLUDE>\*</INCLUDE>
This won't work. You need to use a
/ instead of a \

If you have further questions please
post them only to www-p3p-policy@w3.org
