Third Party Cookies

What are third party cookies?

Third party cookies must be enabled in order for DarwinMail to function. We use third party cookies for logging in to Google's servers to fetch your email, which we do with your private request token.

We also need access to third party cookies for allowing payments (to keep the lights on!) in DarwinMail using a payments provider called Stripe.

You can read more in our Cookie & Privacy Policies.
