Your personal data and third parties

Our service is providing a search engine for tourism that is based on pictures. Therefore you can use our service to a certain point without providing your personal data, similar to other search engines. Your search result is a travel recommendation according to your travel profile. If you wish to receive detailed information on a recommendation in terms of an offer by a travel agency we forward your request to a travel advisor upon your wish. This is at the moment (but maybe extended in future to further agencies) the company STAFA REISEN, Firmenname: Robert Chlebec Reisen GmbH., Mariahilferstrasse 125, 1060 Wien. In order for you to get contacted by an travel advisor of the agency, we share your travel profile, recommended destinations, travel data (number and age of group members [incl. children], planned departure and arrival dates and location of departure) and contact details (name, e-mail address, telephone number) with the agancy, which is specialized on your search results.

Same criterias apply to the handling of personal data of all users on our websites and apps. Your personal data is to be collected when opening a user account.
