    GAN Tracking - No P3P Privacy Policy?
    So, it has always been my impression that GAN has problems tracking iOS sales. Today, the most excellent Rimm-Kaufman group blog did a post where they stated that 3rd party cookies might not be transmitted on checkout pages if the redirecting domain that initially attempted to set the cookies did not have a P3P privacy statement.

    So, I found the w3c P3P validator and ran affiliate links from ShareASale, LinkShare, Commission Junction through it. All of these redirecting domains had a valid P3P privacy policy and checked out OK.

    I then ran GAN links through the same validator. No P3P privacy policy was found. I'm not sure what to think about this. How does GAN tracking work? Do they not use cookies?

    Some links:

    Why this matters... Google Adwords is about to raise iPad traffic to be a "first class" citizen at the same level as desktops. From a recent adwords e-mail:
    In the coming weeks, your ads will automatically begin showing on tablet devices and no further action will be necessary on your part. Please note that this change may result in an increase in costs to your AdWords campaigns.
    Previously, iPads were lumped under "mobile devices".

    So now I urgently need to know, does GAN tracking work on the iPad?
