Soundcloud Embedding

On our websites we embed audio files via the online music service SoundCloud (SoundCloud Limited, Rheinsberger Str. 76/77, 10115 Berlin, Germany). When you view these pages, a connection is established between your browser (end device) and the SoundCloud servers. It is possible that your data, for example, your IP address and the end device you use to visit the page, as well as your activity, is also processed. By loading the audio file and initiating any other interaction with the player service, it is possible that SoundCloud can then process further information about you, for example in order to analyse the music you listen to or your interests. Finally, SoundCloud uses web-tracking methods on their own webpages and within the audio player service. These are active regardless of whether you are registered or are logged in with SoundCloud. Unfortunately, we have no influence or control over the web-tracking methods used by SoundCloud or the linked services.
