Cookie Policy

Our Use of Cookies

When you visit a Marie Forleo International (MFI) website, we will use cookies to give you the best experience on our website (and to keep it free!). Cookies are small text files stored on your device. The information collected does not usually directly identify you; oftentimes, the information is tied to a cookie ID, advertising ID, IP address, or similar online/device identifier.

The specific types of cookies served through our website and the purposes they perform are described below.

Strictly Necessary Cookies

These cookies are necessary for our MFI sites to function or to enable our affiliate program, and cannot be switched off in our systems. They do not store any personally identifiable information.

These cookies are set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services (e.g., submitting an MFI site URL into your browser, clicking an affiliate link to one of our marketing landing pages).

They ensure the proper technical functioning of such service (e.g., carrying out necessary transmissions over the internet, ensuring proper attribution to affiliates who have referred you, showing a website version that has a broadband-related data quantity corresponding to that of your Internet connection, changing from http to https as appropriate, etc.).

More Information on Affiliate Program Cookies: Where you have landed on one of our pages due to a link provided by our trusted affiliates, a cookie is set by our referral marketing provider as necessary for the affiliate to get credit for referring you and for you to get any bonuses or rewards that the affiliate may have offered you for following their referral link. These cookies are what are called ‘third-party’ cookies since they are set by Ambassador, our affiliate marketing platform. They are listed in the following table.

If you do not allow these cookies (e.g., through browser settings or our cookie privacy manager), some parts of the site will not work.

Performance Cookies

These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. These cookies may collect IP address and generate a randomized unique identifier to analyze how frequently a visitor revisits the same site and other metrics such as page views, referral website (i.e., which site the visitor came from), and bounce metrics. If you do not allow these cookies, we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance.
