Functional Cookies

Functional cookies are necessary to help our Website and Service to work as intended. Some of these cookies include, but are not limited to:

A cookie (usually titled “OJSSID”) is created when first visiting Journal of Engineering & Processing Management website and is stored on the visitor’s computer. It is only used to store a session ID, and to facilitate logins. (If the visitor blocks cookies, the website will still work properly, though they will not be able to log in.).

The __cfduid cookie is used to identify individual clients behind a shared IP address and apply security settings on a per-client basis.

For example, if a visitor is in a coffee shop where there may be several infected machines, but the specific visitor's machine is trusted (for example, because they completed a challenge within your Challenge Passage period), the cookie allows Cloudflare to identify that client and not challenge them again. It does not correspond to any user ID in your web application and does not store any personally identifiable information. It is categorized as "Strictly Necessary" for security reasons.
