6. Signage and GPS coordinates
For our sponsors we will make a small wooden sign with the name of the respective tree sponsor and attach it to the newly planted tree. As soon as the newly planted tree is released, the sponsor will receive a confirmation with a picture and the GPS coordinates. The provider is generally anxious to guarantee a free place for the sponsorship in the country of the sponsor, so that the sponsor can check and visit the tree taken over, but without guarantee.
6.1 The signs of the trees are marked with small wooden plates (approx. 6 cm wide and 2 cm high) with the first name and surname. Several first names, surnames, which can become too long, are displayed in small letters, or shortened. The choice is up to the provider.
6.2 The signs of the entrepreneurial sponsorships show the company name, logo, and company name, if applicable. In case of using the company logo, the sponsor must send a corresponding file to our administration so that the logo can be created. If the file is not sent, only the company name will be included. The wooden plates of the companies have a size of about 10 cm in width and 5 cm in height.
6.3 The provider will only release the GPS coordinates after approx. 90 days (after planting). Should a new planting die, a new tree will be planted.

7. Publication of the sponsorship
The godfather can have his name published on www.green-4-free.com for the duration of the sponsorship if desired. This is done by sending a picture that the tree sponsor creates (or has created) as a SELFI and holds the certificate in his hands. For entrepreneur sponsorships we request a picture with the entire team of the sponsor, so that the provider can promote these pictures on the website www.green-4-free.com as well as in the social media for the entrepreneur sponsor. The provider reserves the right to refuse publication at any time.

8. Payment modalities
Payment is made once and in advance for an annual sponsorship.
The administration and care lump sum take place annually and applies to single and family tree sponsors. When ordering the sponsorship, the tree sponsorship plus the administration and care lump sum is required. Tree gifts are valid for 3 years. Company sponsorships are subject to advance payment for the tree costs (250, 500 or 1000 trees). The administration and care costs are due monthly (if necessary, annually) as soon as all trees are planted.
8.1 The following payment methods are available in our store:
The customer can pay the purchase price by credit card or PayPal. When paying by credit card and PayPal, the time of payment corresponds to the time of the order. If the payment service provider “PayPal” is used, the payment is processed under the PayPal terms of use, which can be viewed at www.paypal.com. This requires, among other things, that the customer opens a PayPal account or already has such an account.

9. Description of the sponsorship
With the sending of the sponsorship certificate by e-mail, but at the earliest after receipt of payment, the provider undertakes to plant a new tree on an area (plot) to be defined in this course. The choice of the tree as well as the availability is subject to the climatic requirements of the respective country and can vary greatly.
9.1 During the period of sponsorship (administration and support), the necessary soil cultivation, organic or mineral fertilization and no chemical plant protection will be carried out. The sponsorship ends automatically upon expiry of the agreed period; no further agreements or declarations are required.
9.2 A successful population of the newly planted tree and the wintering of the tree are sought with the means available, but there is no guarantee. Naturally occurring damage (game, dry and hail damage, as well as other damaging natural events) cannot be prevented regularly by the supplier, a complaint because of these damages is excluded. Should the provider be forced to do so for unforeseeable reasons other than those mentioned above, the price paid by the sponsor will be refunded proportionally for each year. This happens automatically.
9.3 A sponsorship is neither a tenancy nor a lease. The sponsor expressly has no right of use or right of entry for the corresponding area. However, an inspection is possible at any time.
9.4 The right of ownership which we transfer after taking over a sponsorship (provided payment has been made) means that the sponsorship cannot be taken up, changed, terminated, or charged to the same. Provided that the sponsorship remains active. This is a safeguard, as we will hand over closed plots to environmental organizations and foundations for administration. This means that the plots cannot be sold or otherwise disposed of, because our godparents would all have to jointly (100%) agree to the sale. We care for the Planet.
