On my blog are audio files that are stored on the Soundcloud platform offered by SoundCloud Limited, Rheinsberger Str. 76/77, 10115 Berlin, Germany and are played back from this platform. For this purpose, I integrate so-called soundcloud widgets into my website. This is playback software that allows users to play the audio files. Soundcloud can measure which audio files are listened to and to what extent and process this information pseudonymously for statistical and business purposes. Cookies may be stored in the browsers of users and processed for the purpose of creating user profiles, e.g. for the purpose of issuing advertisements that correspond to the potential interests of users. In the case of users who are registered with Soundcloud, Soundcloud can assign the listening information to their profiles. The use is based on my legitimate interests, i.e. interest in a secure and efficient provision, analysis and optimisation of my audio services. Further information and possible objections can be found in Soundcloud’s data protection declaration: https://soundcloud.com/pages/privacy.
