• What happens if third party cookies are disabled on my browser?

If third-party cookies are disabled on your browser, some features on the BenQ website may not work quite as you'd expect.

This is because, your BenQ 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 BenQ website.

This won't affect your privacy settings on other websites and services you use.

• How does BenQ use cookies for advertising?

Our advertising is delivered to you through us or our authorised advertising partners. These cookies help us to monitor the effectiveness of the ads. We or our authorised partners may also use cookies that they have set on your device when you were browsing other websites. They do this so that they know you have seen a particular advert or to match you with their database. This helps them to do things like cap how many adverts you see across the internet and, if you have taken part in market research, the research company may record that you have seen a particular advert.
