Sound Trip World is responsible for your personal information provided to or collected by or for our services.
What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small file that is stored on your device and that makes functions of Sound Trip World possible. For example, with cookies we can identify your device, protect your access to Sound Trip World and our websites in general, and even detect when someone tries to access your account from another device. With cookies you can also easily share content on Sound Trip World, while we can show relevant advertisements to you.
When does Sound Trip World place cookies?
What types of cookies does Sound Trip World use?
We use two types of cookies: permanent cookies and session cookies. With a permanent cookie, we can recognize you as an existing user so that you can more easily return to Sound Trip World or use our services without having to log in again. After you have logged in, a permanent cookie will remain in your browser. This is read by Sound Trip World when you return to one of our websites or a partner website where our services are used (for example, our sharing button). Session cookies are only active as long as the session lasts (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).
What are cookies used for?
Cookies can be used to recognize you when you visit Sound Trip World, remember your preferences and offer you a personalized experience that matches your settings. Cookies also make your interactions with Sound Trip World faster and safer. We can also show you advertisements through cookies, both on and off the Sound Trip World website, and offer you custom functions through Sound Trip World plug-ins, such as our Share button.

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 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.
In most browsers you can manage cookies through the settings preferences. However, if you limit which cookies can be set by websites, your overall user experience may deteriorate because they are no longer tailored to you. You may also be unable to save custom settings, such as logon information.
