So the web site states that they are BBB-certified in their policy:

>>>> From the P3P book, p.89:
<DISPUTES resolution-type="independent"
  service="http://www.bbbonline.org" short-description="BBBOnline">

And user Alice would have the following rule in her privacy policy,
allowing her to request content from web sites that are BBB-certified:

<appel:RULE behavior="request" description="Site is BBB-certified.">
      <p3p:DISPUTES appel:connective="and">

Is that correct?
