After reading this article in eweek (http://www.zdnet.com/eweek/stories/general/0,11011,2809962,00.html)
I am curious to find out how to know if a site's privacy statement would come up in IE6.0. How do you make your privacy statement "ready"

If a site is P3P compliant, there are two ways to view their summarized statement. In IE6, go to "View" then select "Privacy Report" and it will display the P3P summary in a pop-up window. If they're not P3P compliant, it will say that you have to visit the site for more information. Th. other way depends on your Cookie Settings. Mine are set to not accept third party cookies and to prompt me on all others. With that, any time a cookie is refused, an icon appears in the browser window's status bar which you can double click for the information. Since my site is P3P compliant [see profile] you can go there and try it. Nothing to tell though - I don't collect personal data
