How does P3P help me with cookies?
The latest versions of browser technology - Internet Explorer 6 and Netscape 7 - are P3P enabled, which means that they are capable of automatically reading privacy policies. However, to date they have only been developed with the capability of providing you with the ability to manage your preferences in relation to cookies. This means that before you start surfing you must decide how you want to manage cookies - both first-party and third-party cookies.
The server sending you a web page sets first-party cookies. Third-party cookies refer to content such as pictures or video, weather reports, stock and share price tickers, advertising images and other content served from a domain other than the page in which it is embedded.
