Policy Evaluation

Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 (IE6) will evaluate this policy’s compact policy whenever it is used with a cookie. The actions Internet Explorer (IE) will take depend on what privacy level the user has selected in their browser (Low, Medium, Medium High, or High; the default is Medium. In addition, IE will examine whether the cookie’s policy is considered satisfactory or unsatisfactory, whether the cookie is a session cookie or a persistent cookie, and whether the cookie is used in a first-party or third-party context. This section will attempt to evaluate this policy’s compact policy against Microsoft’s stated behavior for IE6.

Note: this evaluation is currently experimental and should not be considered a substitute for testing with a real Web browser.

Unsatisfactory policy: this compact policy is considered unsatisfactory according to the rules defined by Internet Explorer 6. The behavior of Internet Explorer 6 regarding cookies set under this compact policy is as follows:

  • Medium High: No opt-out is provided, so the cookie will be blocked.
  • High: Since opt-in is not required, the cookie will be blocked.
  • Low: Opt-out is not provided for all unsatisfactory purposes and recipients, so the cookie will be downgraded to a session cookie.

In addition, the data is used in the following manner, marking the policy as unsatisfactory:
