Idea It would be cool if there was a work around for the privacy feature in IE6 and future browsers that support this technology.

The W3C has some guidelines around this technology:

http://www.w3.org/P3P/#what

Quote:
The Platform for Privacy Preferences Project (P3P), developed by the World Wide Web Consortium, is emerging as an industry standard providing a simple, automated way for users to gain more control over the use of personal information on Web sites they visit. At its most basic level, P3P is a standardized set of multiple-choice questions, covering all the major aspects of a Web site's privacy policies. Taken together, they present a clear snapshot of how a site handles personal information about its users. P3P-enabled Web sites make this information available in a standard, machine-readable format. P3P enabled browsers can "read" this snapshot automatically and compare it to the consumer's own set of privacy preferences. P3P enhances user control by putting privacy policies where users can find them, in a form users can understand, and, most importantly, enables users to act on what they see.


Idea I don't know if this could be built in to the user settings screen so when they setup the account they had the option of answering the appropriate questions and having this data incorporated to the tracking script.

It would be very nice to have this built in already.
It's really very simple to do yourself once you have gotten your head around the mountain of paper work for P3P!

I've managed to do this for my logging software and it works a treat.
You can add a compact policy to any script that tries to set cookies using PHP. You can also use an HTTP header to send the policy.

I'm not too sure if having this built in would be that easy. There is one very specific XML document that you need to have which describes how you use the data.

Worth looking at though Smile
