What do Cookies do on my Website?

by | Dec 10, 2021 | Verena's Design Studio, Basics | 0 comments

We’ve seen cookie banners pop-up on websites we visit, you’ve had to put in your preferences for this website, and you will have to deal with cookies and privacy on your own website as well.

Most cookies are harmless, useful even. For example on this website a cookie gets set to remember the choices you made in the cookie banner.

Another cookie determines whether the content should be shown to you in English or in German.

Yet another one gets set to record if the newsletter sign up form has already been shown to you, or not. This way you don’t get a reminder about the newsletter each time you visit this website.

Another harmless Cookie is the statistics cookie. We use Matomo for statistics, which automatically anonymizes your IP address and with it your identity. These settings can be set with Google Analytics as well.

Statistics only monitor how people use the website, to see which articles are most read, etc – to find out which information is useful.

This is essential for website owners, not necessarily for marketing reasons, though it can be used for that as well, but also just to look at and improve the content we offer.

So simply check if statistics are used anonymously in the cookie box and then allow for statistical cookies – to ensure website owners can improve and monitor their websites. if you have your own website, you know how relevant this can be.

The third category shown in the cookie pop-up is cookies used to display Media. This gives you the option to hide content from other Media such as YouTube and Instagram until you agree to see and interact with the content.

Only the last category, Marketing, is actually used for commercial reasons in the sense that it uses your data for advertisement and tracking.

The choice is yours: when you visit a website and how you run your own.

By the way: we use Borlabs Cookies 🦜 as a Cookie Pop-Up for this website and trust and recommend them.

If you have any questions about the use of Cookies on this website or how to work with Cookies on your website – get in touch!

Shopping consciously is easy now.

Our world needs you.
In your full power.

Start exploring new ways to be in this world.

How can you benefit from coaching? Life is precious, and it's a limited period of time we have on this earth, in this form. We can use this time to grow, experience, love, serve and learn.

Each of us gets to choose in every moment how their life is going to continue, but often we don't make the choices we want, but the ones we think are expected from us. And that leads to chaos, unhappiness and confusion because we're not aligned with our inner knowing.

Once we realize that we have the power to choose and change our circumstances, life enters into a more natural flow.

But to get there, we have some unlearning to do. We need to uncover the subconscious believes that keep us stuck, we need to leave our comfort zones and stretch ourselves, and we have to form new habits that serve us better. And that's what I'm here for, I will help you to become joyfully interdependent.

If you would like to work with me as a coach, I can guide you to find new options that are more aligned with your inner knowing, and to learn to trust your inner voice, to clear blockages that have been holding you back and to open up space for what really matters in your life. The best way to work with me this year is by joining the Generous Life Membership Programme as a VIP member with individual coaching.

On this journey you can find clarity, confidence, love, freedom, connection and so much more.
