What is Do Not Track (DNT)?

DNT is a concept that has been promoted by regulators, in particular the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC), for the Internet industry to develop and implement a mechanism that allows internet users to determine whether their online activities on websites can be tracked via their browser settings. The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) collaborates with three industry groups, internet browsers, technology companies and regulators to develop a standard for DNT technology. Although some progress has been made, this is slow. To date, no standard has yet been adopted. That is why Sound Trip World generally does not respond to Do Not Track signals.

How are cookies used for advertising purposes?

Thanks to cookies and other advertising technologies, such as web beacons, pixels and tags, we can show you more relevant ads. They also help us gather aggregated audit, research and reporting data for advertisers. In addition, they help us understand and improve the service, and enable us to track when content is shown to you. Note: Because your web browser may request ads and web beacons directly from third-party advertising network servers, these networks may view, edit, or set their own cookies just as if you had requested a webpage from their site. Ads shown by Sound Trip World may also set third-party cookies.
If you are logged into soundtrip.world or another service that refers to this cookie policy or if you browse to a website of a Sound Trip World partner and one of your cookies on your device identifies you, your use (such as your surfing behavior) and log data (such as your IP address) linked to your account by us as described in article 1.3 of our privacy policy. We also use aggregated third-party data and data from your profile and activities on Sound Trip World.
If you are a Sound Trip World player but have been logged out of your account in a browser, Sound Trip World can continue to interact with our services in that browser for 30 days to generate usage statistics for our services. We can pass on these statistics to our advertising customers in a merged form.
Unless you delete these cookies from your browser, we may use this information to:

  • offer more relevant ads based on your interests
  • provide merged reports of advertising activities to advertisers and websites hosting these ads
  • provide websites and app owners with insight into the way visitors use their website or app
  • detect fraud and other risks and act against them to protect users and partners
  • improve our products
    We do not provide any personal information to advertisers that we have collected.
