    I am seeing more and more sites, in numerous ways, try to set the tracking cookie even before the visitors visit the merchant.

    This tactics, including but not limited to,
    1. Pop-Up and Pop-Under
    2. Visible and Non-Visible Frame

    They are no more than some kind of annoying parasites which should be eliminated at all cost.

    This is why I serve all my own banners. Just too lazy to change my privacy statement. Takes a lot of work to explain why some other company is setting cookies on my site.

    Red,

    It is a violation of the PSA, but very and I mean very loosely enforced.

    I posted the URL of one such violation here at ABW. Todd Crawford responded "sounds like a violation", and "I'll have the compliance department look into it".

    That was months ago. Nothing happened. The guy is still out there doing his tricks for cookies schemes.

    Kelly,

    These should also be posted in the ask a question area of Commission Junction where I think you may get more action and response.
