Each time a customer (or other visitor) accesses our website, information is automatically sent to the server of our website by the Internet browser used on your end device (computer, laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.). This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file.

The following data is collected without your intervention and stored until automated deletion:

  • (pseudonymized) IP address of the requesting computer, as well as device ID or individual device identifier and device type,
  • Name of the retrieved file and transferred data volume, as well as date and time of the retrieval,
  • message about successful retrieval,
  • requesting domain,
  • Description of the type of Internet browser used and, if applicable, the operating system of your terminal device, as well as the name of your access provider,
  • Your browser history data as well as your default weblog information,

Our legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO to collect the data is based on the following purposes:

  • Ensuring a smooth connection setup and a comfortable use of the website,
  • evaluation of system security and stability as well as
  • for other administrative purposes.

In no case do we use the collected data for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your person.

b) When using our contact form

For questions of any kind, we offer you the opportunity to contact us via a form provided on the website. In doing so, at least the specification of a valid e-mail address and your name is required so that we know from whom the inquiry originates and in order to be able to answer it. Further information can be provided voluntarily.

Data processing for the purpose of contacting us is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO on the basis of your voluntarily given consent.

The personal data collected by us for the use of the contact form will be automatically deleted after completion of your request.

c) Upon conclusion of a contractual relationship

When concluding a contractual relationship on our website (e.g. registration on the website/platform, purchase in our online store, purchase of the software/ (e.g. when purchasing in our online store or on eBay, registration as a customer …) we ask you to provide the following personal data:

  • Data that personally identifies you such as name and email address, address billing and shipping address/ and phone number,
  • photos,
  • academic title,
  • data identifying your company, such as company name, address, communication data (e-mail address, telephone, fax number), VAT ID or tax number, if applicable,
  • information about your means of payment,
  • other personal data that we are required or authorized by law to collect and process and that we need for your authentication, identification or to verify the data we have collected.
    The aforementioned data will be processed for the purpose of processing the contractual relationship and – if necessary – passed on to the transport company commissioned with the delivery. The processing of the data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO. The storage period is limited to the purpose of the contract and, if applicable, legal and contractual retention obligations.

For the payment of contracts concluded with us for a fee, we also work with payment service providers. We pass on your payment data to the commissioned payment service provider within the framework of the payment processing – for the purpose of the payment – insofar as this is necessary for the payment processing.

Alternatively, you are welcome to send your unsubscribe request at any time to info@treesense.net by email (preferably with the subject: “Unsubscribe Newsletter”).

We recommend using the double opt-in procedure for registration. This procedure is the only procedure that German courts have so far deemed admissible as a basis of proof. According to the DSGVO, the customer must consent to the data collection quasi before “losing” the e-mail address, similar to the contact form. We therefore recommend that, even before subscribing to the newsletter, you also set a checkbox that is not pre-populated, for example with the following text: “By setting the checkmark in the checkbox, you consent to us processing the data you provide in accordance with our privacy policy and using it to send our e-mail newsletter.

6. Online marketing/analysis measures

We use online marketing measures and tracking tools on our website to analyze the behavior of users on our website. With this statistical collection, we want to design our website to meet your needs and continuously adapt it for you, as our user, and optimize its use. The use of online marketing and tracking measures used by us is based on Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO, § 15 para. 3 TMG. Our aforementioned interests are legitimate within the meaning of the aforementioned provision.

a) Integration of the Trusted Shops trust badge.

In order to display our Trusted Shops seal of approval and any ratings collected, as well as to offer Trusted Shops products to buyers after an order, the Trusted Shops Trustbadge is integrated on this website. This serves to protect our legitimate interests in an optimal marketing of our offer, which prevail in the context of a balancing of interests according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The Trustbadge and the services advertised with it are an offer of Trusted Shops GmbH, Subbelrather Str. 15C, 50823 Cologne.

When the Trustbadge is called up, the web server automatically saves a so-called server log file, which contains, for example, your IP address, the date and time of the call, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the call. This access data is not evaluated and is automatically overwritten no later than seven days after the end of your visit to the site. Further personal data is only transferred to Trusted Shops if you decide to use Trusted Shops products after completing an order or if you have already registered to use them. In this case, the contractual agreement between you and Trusted Shops applies.

b) Google Analytics

Please note that, in addition to the explanations in the privacy policy, further requirements are necessary for the data protection-compliant integration of Google Analytics, including an agreement with Google on order processing, a determination of the retention period, an opt-out cookie and, if necessary, the deletion of old data. In some cases, prior consent is required, e.g. via a cookie banner. You can obtain further information, for example, here: www.datenschutzbeauftragter-info.de/fachbeitraege/google-analytics-datenschutzkonform-einsetzen/.

For the purpose of demand-oriented design and ongoing optimization of our websites, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. https://www.google.de/intl/de/about/ (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter “Google”). In this context, pseudonymized usage profiles are created and cookies (see above) are set.

The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website, such as browser type/version, operating system used, referrer URL (the previously visited page), host name of the accessing computer (IP address) and the time of the server request are usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. In the event that IP anonymization is activated on this website, however, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website and internet usage for the purposes of market research and demand-oriented design of these websites. Our legitimate interest in data processing also lies in these purposes. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is § 15 para. 3 TMG in conjunction with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

This information may also be transferred to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on our behalf. In no case will your IP address be merged with other data from Google. The IP addresses are anonymized so that an assignment is not possible (so-called IP masking).

The data sent by us and linked to cookies, user IDs (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs are automatically deleted after 14 months. The deletion of data whose retention period has been reached takes place automatically once a month.

Google provides new data retention controls so that you can choose between different time periods to determine the retention period (aggregated data is not affected), but the retention period should be limited to 14 months, even if Google Analytics allows a longer retention period.

Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Thus, there is no possibility that cookies can be tracked through websites of AdWords customers.

This tells customers the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information with which users can be personally identified. Our legitimate interest in data processing also lies in these purposes. The legal basis for the use of Google Adwords/ Conversion Tracking is Section 15 (3) TMG in conjunction with Article 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO.
