For detailed information on the cookies we use and the purposes for which we use them see our Cookie policy set out on our website

Cookie Policy

This Cookie Policy explains how we use cookies and similar technologies to recognize you when you visit the website (our site). It explains what these technologies are and why we use them, as well as your rights to control our use of them.
What are cookies?
As is common practice with almost all professional websites our site uses cookies, which are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website to improve your experience.
Cookies set by Tree Energy Solutions B.V. and its subsidiaries (“TES, we or us”) are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than us are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.
Why do we use cookies?
We use cookies for a variety of reasons detailed below, but only collect cookies that are absolutely necessary. Unfortunately in most cases there are no industry standard options for disabling cookies without completely disabling the functionality and features they add to this site. It is recommended that you leave on all cookies if you are not sure whether you need them or not in case they are used to provide a service that you use.
We use first party and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our site to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the user experience on our site. Third parties serve cookies through our site for advertising, analytics and other purposes. This is described in more detail below.
The specific types of first and third party cookies served through our site and the purposes they perform are described below:
“Strictly necessary” cookies, which have to be set to allow us to deliver the site to you and to provide specific services that you request from us. The services offered by this site that require cookies to function include: account log-in (if and when available) and comments/blog features.
“Performance” or “Analytics” cookies, which help us to collect information about how visitors use our site and helps us with site analysis and improvements. Performance or analytics cookies will remain on your computer after you close your browser.

“Functionality” cookies, which allow our site to remember your choices or preferences, such as information on online forms. These cookies allow us to offer you a personalized experience while using the site. They are not used to track your browsing activity on other websites.
“Targeting” cookies, which are used to deliver advertising more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. They are usually placed by advertising networks with our permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organizations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organization. So, basically, these cookies collect information about your browsing habits in order to make advertising relevant to you and your interests.
What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?
Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has visited our site or opened an e-mail that we have sent them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users within our site, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our site from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.
