What happens if third party cookies are disabled on my browser?
If third-party cookies are disabled on your browser, some features on the AEWIN website may not work quite as you’d expect.
This is because, your AEWIN session relies on cookies to provide personalisation.
If your browser is blocking third-party cookies, some of these features can’t work properly so you may experience problems.
We’re working on a way of solving this problem. In the meantime, if you’ve chosen to block third-party cookies on your browser and want to avoid problems, be sure to set exceptions for AEWIN website.
This won’t affect your privacy settings on other websites and services you use.
