Our website uses plugins from the audio streaming platform “Spotify,” operated by Spotify AB, Regeringsgatan 19, SE-111 53 Stockholm, Sweden. An overview of the “Spotify” plugins can be found at We utilize Spotify by embedding individual audio files or playlists from the audio streaming platform on our website using a method known as an iFrame (embedding). This enables us to offer you playable audio files from our podcast “Heart-a-Tech” directly on our website as streams. When you visit a webpage on our site that contains an embedded Spotify plugin, a connection is established to Spotify’s servers to display the plugin within our web presence. This connection involves transmitting the URL you’ve visited to Spotify, and your IP address may also be transmitted if necessary. Once you click the “Play” button within the Spotify plugin and play an audio file, this information is also transmitted to Spotify. The files are associated with your Spotify account if you are logged into Spotify within your browser. If you do not wish for this information to be transmitted to Spotify and associated with your Spotify account, please log out of your Spotify account.
