A P3P Preference Exchange Language 1.0 (APPEL1.0)

This document complements the P3P1.0 specification [P3P10] by specifying a language for describing collections of preferences regarding P3P policies between P3P agents. Using this language, a user can express her preferences in a set of preference-rules (called a ruleset), which can then be used by her user agent to make automated or semi-automated decisions regarding the acceptability of machine-readable privacy policies from P3P enabled Web sites.
