What are cookies
Cookies are small text files with relevant information that are loaded whenever a website is accessed on a computer, laptop, cellphone/smartphone or tablet.
Placement of cookies will not only help the website recognize the user’s device the next time it visits but also, and often, will be essential for the proper functioning of the website. Cookies used by Jinja website do not collect personal user information. Instead, they keep generic information, namely, device type, location or country of access and how the website is used, etc. Cookies only retain information relating to your preferences.
Generally speaking, cookies are used to enhance the user’s browsing experience by increasing the response speed and efficiency. They eliminate the need to repeatedly enter the same information and help determine which advertising messages are relevant and fit the user’s interests.
Different types of cookies
Each cookie has its own function and expiration date.
When it comes to their function, cookies can be:

Functional – Allow the website to remember the user’s navigation preferences, and, hence, require no reconfiguration or customization on each new visit.
Analytical – Used to analyze how users use the site, allowing them to highlight articles that may be of interest, to monitor the website performance, to understand page preferences, to know what connection method between pages is more effective or to determine why some pages are receiving error messages. These cookies are used only for the purpose of creation and statistical analysis, and never to collect personal information. That is why Jinja can provide a high quality experience by customizing what they offer and by quickly identifying and fixing any problems.
When it comes to expiration of cookies they can be:
Permanent – Stored in the access devices (computer, mobile phone / smartphone or tablet), on the web browser, and are used whenever the user visits the site again. They are generally used to direct the navigation according to the user’s interests, allowing Jinja to provide a customized service.
Session – Temporary and available until you close the session (log off). The next time you access your browser the cookies will not be stored. The information obtained can manage the sessions, identify problems and provide a better browsing experience.
