Details on data collection and handling

 

Automatically collected data

The web space provider for usetree.de/com/net (STRATO AG – Pascalstraße 10, D- 10587 Berlin, Phone: +49 (0)30-300 146-0, datenschutz@strato.de) collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits in so-called server log files. This includes:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • operating system used
  • referrer URL
  • Hostname of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address

This can be used to generate statistics on user behaviour, as far as the database permits. This data will not be combined with any other data sources.

The basis for processing data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

Use of third-party services

Third-party services that provide certain code resources are used to display this site. These are so-called Content Delivery Networks (CDNs), through which, for example, design frameworks, code libraries and fonts are obtained. This always requires that the providers of these services perceive the IP address of the users because without the IP address they could not send the services to the browser of the respective user. We endeavour to use only those services whose respective providers use the IP address only for delivery. However, we have no influence on whether the third party providers store the IP address, for example for statistical purposes.

The following CDNs are used on this page:

  • Google Fonts fonts.googleapis.com
  • Google Maps maps.googleapis.com

If we become aware of this, we will inform users about it or, depending on the technical possibilities, make the IP anonymous.

Integration of third-party content

Articles on this website may include embedded content, for example, videos, images, contributions, infographics etc. Embedded content from other websites behaves exactly as if the user had visited the other website. These websites may collect information about you, use cookies, embed third-party tracking services and record your interaction with that embedded content if you have an account and are logged at this time.

Integration of Google Maps

The maps of the service “Google Maps” are integrated into our website, from the provider Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The processed data may include IP addresses and the location data of users. This data is, however, not collected without consent (as a rule within the framework of the settings of the mobile devices). It is possible that the data will be processed in the USA.

 

Safety precautions

 

We take appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure a level of protection appropriate to the risk, taking into account the state of the art, implementation costs and the nature, scope, circumstances and purposes of processing as well as the different probability of occurrence and severity of the risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons, in accordance with Art. 32 DSGVO.

Such measures include in particular ensuring the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data by controlling physical access to the data, as well as the access, input, transmission, security of availability and its separation. Furthermore, we have established procedures to ensure the exercise of rights of data subjects, deletion of data and reaction to the endangerment of data. Additionally, we consider the protection of personal data during the development or selection of hardware, software and procedures, in accordance with the principle of data protection through technology design and data protection-friendly presets (Art. 25 DSGVO).
