This personal data protection policy applies to the treetz application.

When you register with treetz, we may ask you for information that is necessary, appropriate, proportionate and legitimate for the purpose for which it is collected. You will be informed of the purpose of the collection, how we will use your information, whether your request is mandatory or optional, and the possible consequences of not responding.

  • We may also collect data from your use of the application, which allows us to determine your location (for example, where you can scan a proof of purchase). This information about your location is collected for fraud prevention purposes, and to operate and improve the app.

We will generally only collect your personal information where we have your consent or where it is in our legitimate interests without overriding your data protection or fundamental rights and freedoms. If we collect and use your personal information in reliance on our legitimate interests (or those of third parties), we will make clear to you at the relevant time what those legitimate interests are.
