Additional Information:
This error has already been posted. (The post was closed, so I could not add this post to it as a comment.) The only (unhelpful) answer state that cookies settings needed to be changed in Chromium (?) and also in Shields.

How do you set the Chromium settings? What settings does Google require and how can you make them specifically to all Google sites?

I have no problem with Google sites with Brave running on Ubuntu 18.04.3, but from memory I believe that is an earlier release than that I am using on Windows. I am using the Duck Duck Go search engine on both OSes.
