Using Facebook Social Plugins 

The i‑contravel website uses social plugins ("plugins") of the social network, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). The plugins are identifiable by a Facebook logo (white "f" on a blue tile, the term "Like" or a "thumbs up" icon) or are identified by the description "Facebook Social Plugin". A complete list of Facebook Social Plugins and what they look like can be found here: When you open a page within this webite in your browser, your browser will connect directly to the servers of Facebook. The content of the plugin is downloaded directly from Facebook to your browser and integrates into the website. Insofar, i‑contravel has no means of checking or controlling the data that Facebook receives with the help of this plugin and informs users according to its present knowledge: By integrating the social plugin, Facebook receives the information that a user has accessed a page on our web site. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the access to the user's Facebook account. When a user interacts with the plugins (for example, by clicking or pressing the "Like" button), the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook gathers and stores the user's IP address. According to Facebook, the service only collects an anonymized version of the UP address for users in Germany. The purpose and scope of data collection, as well as further processing and use of data by Facebook can be viewed in Facebook's privacy policy, which can be found here: , If a user is a Facebook member and do not want that Facebook collects data about this offer about him and linked to his stored on Facebook member data, he must log off before visiting this website.
