Hi Hermit,
Thank you for using MSDN Newsgroup! My name is Steven, and I'll be
assisting you on this issue.
From your description, you're looking for some information on how to set
privacy policy for the
cookie on a client machine ?
If there is anything I misunderstood, please feel free to let me know.

Based on my research, the clientside's cookie privacy policy setting are
mostly generated by the browser. If you're using Microsoft Internet
Explorer, you could change the setting in the IE's security setting panel.
And here are some tech ariticles on how to set the security policy in IE
including the cookie privacy setting:

# Internet Explorer Security Zones

Hope they will be helpful. Also, if you feel them not quite suitable for
your situation, please feel free to let me know more info on your
requirement and I'll be willing to assist you.

Hi Hermit,
Based on my further research, we need to create privacy policy for a site
and configure the IIS servrer only when need to impelment some certain
functions of the cookie operations. For example, if we want our site to
support Platform for Privacy Preferences(P3P), when we'd have to configure
the IIS server (including create the full privacy policy, policy reference,
and compact codes). So I'm not sure whether your server need such
configurations. And here is a KB article on
#HOW TO: Configure IIS To Use Platform for Privacy Preferences (P3P)
http://support.microsoft.com/?id=324013

Also, there has the weblinks to some other web reference such as on
"how to create the full privacy policy, policy reference, and compact codes"
http://www.w3.org/P3P

and "information about full privacy policy, policy reference, and compact
codes"
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...curity/privacy
/overview/createprivacypolicy.asp

Please check out the proceding items to see whether they're helpful. If you
need any further help, please feel free to post here.

Steven,

Thank you for both the posts.
Answering this one first:
The reason that site was in blocked list was because i set IE's privacy
settings to High.
If i were to change it to medium high or medium then it just works fine.

My feeling is that its due to serverside's privacy policy. Let me finish
with the second post and check the links, I will answer it in just a moment

Hi Hermit,
From the screenshot you provided, the the message shows that the site was
in the block list , have you check the block list or remove it? Also, have
you tried visit the site from another client machine which can work well?
Or the problem is actually due to the serverside's cookie privacy policy?

I've searched more reference on the cookie privacy. Here is some KB
articles which maybe helpful to you.
#The Default Privacy Settings for Internet Explorer 6
http://support.microsoft.com/?id=293222

#How to Manage Cookies in Internet Explorer 6
http://support.microsoft.com/?id=283185

#Any Existing Cookies Can Still Be Read by a Web Site Even When the
"Block"
Option Is Selected
http://support.microsoft.com/?id=298780

As for how to deploy the cookie privacy, I'll continue to look for some
further reference to help you. In the meantime, if you have any new
findings, please also let me know. Thanks.

Steven,

That was exactly the information i was looking for.
What i needed to know, was the extent to which, i would have a control over
cookies, and whether i could have a better control to make sure that the
cookie is not blocked because of Privacy Settings being High on clients
browser.
I do understand how to set a privacy policy now.
I do appreciate the help, thank you
