2.1.7 [W3C-P3P1.0] Section 2.3.4, Forms and Related Mechanisms

V0008:

The specification states:

...user agents SHOULD check the well-known location on the host of the action URI 
to attempt to find a policy reference file that covers the action URI. If this does 
not provide a P3P policy to cover the action URI, then a user agent MAY try to 
retrieve the policy reference file by using the HINT mechanism on the action URI, 
and/or by issuing a HEAD request to the action URI before actually submitting any 
data in order to find the policy in effect.

All Document Modes (All Versions)

Policies are downloaded only when the user requests to see the policy for a particular URI. To see policies, click the Tools menu, click Internet Options, and then click the Privacy tab.

V0009:

The specification states:

In case the underlying application does not understand the HEAD request and no 
policy has been predeclared for the action URI in question, user agents MUST assume 
that no policy is in effect and SHOULD inform the user about this or take the 
corresponding actions according to the user's preferences.

All Document Modes (All Versions)

Action URIs are not checked. Users are not informed that action URIs have no policy nor that a full P3P policy is missing.

V0010:

The specification states:

User agents MUST assume that all data elements are collected under every 
circumstance.

All Document Modes (All Versions)

Action URIs are not checked. Collecting data elements is not performed.
