>> Cookies in IE6/ P3P Standard
Third Party Cookies in IE6.
In Internet Explorer 6.0 Microsoft made some significant changes to cookies by implementing the W3C's Platform for Privacy Preferences (P3P).  By default IE6.0 now blocks all third-party cookies that do not comply with this new standard.  If using the ROI/CPA feature introduced in version 3.0, cookies are required to track acquisitions.  Because the ROI/CPA tracking code will be placed on external web servers, IE 6.0 will treat them as 3rd party cookies.  Therefore, you must take special steps to ensure that cookies are properly used in Ban Man Pro.
Note: You must be using version 3.02 and higher of Ban Man Pro to have full support of IE 6 cookies.

To make your web site compliant you must create and publish your own Privacy Policy in XML format.  There are several files required for a complete implementation.  These files include:

  1. A Policy Reference File called  P3P.XML  This file simply informs browsers of the location of your full P3P Privacy Policy.  This file should be placed at http://www.yourdomain.com/w3c/  A sample p3p.xml file is shown below. 

    Note: You must replace www.banmanpro.com with your domain name before saving p3p.xml.  Once created, place this file in a folder called "w3c".

  2. A full P3P Privacy Policy in XML format with a file name of P3Policy.xml  This file should be placed at http://www.yourdomain.com/w3c/  The following example was obtained from the Center For Democracy and Technology.  This basic policy covers the general information that is collected by Ban Man Pro. 
    1. The URL of your human readable privacy policy (line 1)
    2. Contact information (lines 6-10) (5 fields)
    3. The URL of your human readable customer service information (line 19)

  3. A standard HTML privacy policy with any name.  This file is references in P3Policy.xml and can be located anywhere on your web site.  To view AdComplete.com's privacy policy, please click here.
  4. Lastly, whenever a cookie is written to a browser, a cookie privacy policy must be written to the browser using HTTP headers.  Ban Man Pro is responsible for handling this step so you need not worry about it.  You must be using 3.02 and higher in order to have this functionality.
