What are cookies?
When you visit a website, your web browser may send small text called cookies to the site. These files are saved in your browser and can help the website recognise you when you return, making your next visit more convenient and valuable. Cookies can be either “persistent,” meaning they stay on your device for a set period, or “session” cookies, which are temporary and are deleted once you close your browser. Persistent cookies are activated each time you visit the website that created them. In contrast, session cookies allow the website to track your actions during a browsing session, which lasts from when you open your browser window to when you close it. Cookies have four functions: strictly necessary, performance, functionality, and targeting or advertising.
When you access and use our Service, we may place numerous cookie files in your web browser.
These cookies serve the following purposes: to enable particular functions of the Service, to provide analytics, to store your preferences, and to allow delivery of advertisements, including behavioural advertising. We use both session and persistent cookies on our Service, and we use different types of cookies for running the Service:
Strictly necessary cookies are crucial for navigating a website and accessing its features. Without them, you would be unable to use essential services such as registration or shopping baskets. These cookies don’t collect any information about you that could be used for marketing purposes or to track your internet activity.
Performance cookies collect anonymous statistical data on website usage to improve the user experience. They do not contain personal information.
Our website uses performance cookies to gather information that helps us understand how you use it. This includes whether you’ve visited, what pages you viewed or clicked on, and how you found us. We use this data to improve our services. Usually, we engage independent analytics companies to perform this service on our behalf, and in such cases, third-party cookies may be set by those companies.
Functionality cookies allow users to personalise website settings. They recall usernames, language preferences, and regions and can provide customised services like local weather and traffic updates.
Advertising and targeting cookies are designed to provide more relevant advertisements while controlling the frequency you see them. They can also help track the clicks of users and assess the effectiveness of ad campaigns. In addition, they can ensure secure transactions. Advertising networks typically place them with the website owner’s permission, but the owner can also put them. These cookies can remember you visited a website and share that information with other organisations, including advertisers. However, they cannot identify who you are since the collected data is never linked to your profile.
The two main ways we use advertising and targeting cookies are set out below:
JIA Greece uses interest-based advertising, also known as online behavioural advertising. This involves cookies being placed on your device by our third-party service providers. These cookies remember your web browsing activity and group together your interests, which helps us provide targeted advertisements that are more relevant to your preferences when you visit jiagreece.com. Your previous web browsing activity can also be analysed to infer things about you, such as your demographics (age, gender, etc.). We may use this information to make the advertising on JIA Greece more relevant to your interests and preferences.
Retargeting is interest-based advertising, allowing our advertising partners to display ads based on your browsing activity outside our website. This method enables companies to advertise to individuals who have previously visited their websites. These cookies are typically placed on your device by third-party advertising networks, and we have listed the primary third-party networks we collaborate with below.
