Privacy Policy

In this Privacy Policy, we inform you about how we, Feldenkrais EuroTAB Council / EuroTAB (hereinafter also "we" and "us"), collect and process your personal data (hereinafter also referred to as "data" or "personal data").

If you provide us with the personal data of other persons (e.g., employee data), we assume that you are authorized to do so and that the data is accurate. By transmitting data about other persons, you confirm this. Please ensure that the other persons are informed about this Privacy Policy.

We are committed to handling your data responsibly. This is important to us. Insofar as we (or third parties on our behalf) collect and process personal data, we comply with the requirements of the Swiss Data Protection Act. In addition, we also comply with the requirements of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) insofar as we are legally or contractually obliged to do so. However, whether and to what extent these laws are applicable depends on the individual case.

The information included in this Privacy Policy:

Feldenkrais EuroTAB Council / EuroTAB is responsible under applicable data protection law for data processing in accordance with this Privacy Policy. If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy, our use of your data, or your respective rights, please contact us at:

2. The data we collect and for what purpose

2.1 Visiting the website (creation of log files) and other electronic offers

Each time our website is visited, the web server automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer. This includes, in particular, information about the browser type and version used, the user's operating system, the user's Internet service provider, the referrer URL (websites from which the user's system accesses our website), websites that are accessed by the user's system via our website, as well as the user's IP address, access date and time and the client's file request (file name and URL). This data is stored in the log files of our system (or by third parties) together with other data and is only collected for statistical analysis.

When you use other electronic services, such as our Wi-Fi network, we collect certain technical data. The technical data also includes the logs in which we record the use of our systems (log data). In some cases, we may also assign a unique identification number (an ID) to your end device (tablet, PC, smartphone, etc.).

We use this data to ensure the smooth connection, the convenient use of our website and other electronic offers, the evaluation of system security and stability and for other administrative purposes. This data generally does not allow us to draw any conclusions about your identity. However, in the context of user accounts or registrations, it can be linked to other data categories and thus possibly to your person.

2.2 Marketing and newsletter, registration for events

We may use your name and postal or e-mail address(es) to provide our offers and services and to send you newsletters, event information/invitations, publications, and the like. Newsletters are sent via our current software partner, Mailchimp, located in the USA. Information on Mailchimp's data protection can be found here. By registering, you agree that we may transfer your data to our software partner, that we may track your opening and clicking behavior, and that we may contact you directly in individual cases. If required by law, we will obtain your prior consent for this unless we have received your contact details as part of our offers and services and you have not expressly refused to receive such marketing information. If you no longer wish to receive such mailings from us, you can unsubscribe any time using the contact details provided. There is also an unsubscribe link at the end of each e-mail.

On the website, you also have the option of registering online for media notifications using our registration form by entering your details. When you register, the data you enter in the input mask will be transmitted to us and stored. By registering, you agree that we may process this data as well as the content of discussions and the like, that we may track your click and opening behavior, and that we may also make excerpts of the data available to third parties (e.g., photos on social media). You also confirm that you have read and understood our Privacy Policy.

Insofar as we refer to third-party websites in publications, event information/invitations, etc., and you visit these websites, the corresponding data protection declarations of the respective website operators apply. We have no influence on this.

2.3 Contact by e-mail and other communication channels

We offer you the possibility of contacting us via the e-mail address(es) posted on our website and via other digital communication channels (e.g. WhatsApp). In this case, we store the transmitted data.

Some digital communication channels are operated by companies based in the USA (e.g. WhatsApp). Information on the data protection of these communication channels can be found on the respective websites. By using these digital communication channels, you agree that your data may be transferred to other countries, including the USA, that your opening and clicking behaviour may be tracked, and that we may contact you directly. You can revoke your consent to the use of the selected digital communication channel at any time. To do so, please contact us using the contact details provided.

Some digital communication traffic (e.g. e-mail) is unencrypted and unsecured. The risk remains with you.

2.4 Contact forms

On our website, we offer you the opportunity to get in touch with us. This enables us to contact you and deal with your enquiry. The data you enter in this input mask(s) will be transmitted to us and stored. By sending the contact form, you agree that we process your data. You also confirm that you have read and understood our Privacy Policy.

2.5 In the context of business relationships

We process the data that we receive as part of our business relationship with our customers, other business partners, and other persons involved. In particular, this includes contact data such as title, first name, surname, gender, date of birth, address, e-mail address, telephone number, and other contact data, as well as communication data such as exchanged communication content from e-mails, other written correspondence, telephone conversations, video conferences, etc. and information on the type, time and place of communication.

Where permitted, we also obtain data from publicly accessible sources (e.g., commercial registers, media, the internet, social media, etc.). In addition to data that you provide to us directly, this includes data that we receive about you from third parties (authorities, banks, etc.), in particular information from registers, in connection with official and court proceedings, in connection with your professional functions and activities, information about you in correspondence and meetings with third parties, information that people from your environment (e.g. family, advisors, legal representatives, employers) provide to us so that we can establish our relationship with you, that we can conclude or process contracts with or involving you (e.g. references, powers of attorney), your address and, if applicable, interests and other socio-demographic data (for marketing).

2.7 Other purposes

Another purpose of processing data is to safeguard other legitimate interests. These cannot be named explicitly. They depend on the individual case.


3. Legal basis of data processing

3.1 Within the scope of our offers and for the fulfillment of obligations

Data is processed for the purpose of providing our offers and services to our customers, including pre-contractual measures and post-contractual support (e.g. consulting). The data collected in this way is used for the entire processing of our offers and services, including any subsequent claims, technical administration, etc. Further details on the purposes of data processing can be found in the relevant offer documents, including applicable terms and conditions.

3.2 Within the framework of the balane of interests

 Where necessary and permissible, we process your data to protect our legitimate interests or those of third parties. This includes: 

  • consultation of and data exchange with information centers and other third parties (e.g. authorities);
  • examination and optimisation of procedures for needs analysis for direct customer contact and collection of personal data from publicly accessible sources for customer acquisition;
  • advertising or market and opinion research, unless you have objected to the use of your data;
  • assertion of legal claims and defense in legal disputes;
  • examination of possible conflicts of interest;
  • risk management;
  • ensuring IT security and IT operations;
  • prevention and investigation of criminal offenses;
  • measures for business management and further development of services as well as the website;
  • purchase and sale of business divisions, companies, or parts of companies and other transactions under company law and the associated transfer of data as well as measures for business management.
3.3 Based on your consent

If you have given us your consent to process data for specific purposes, the lawfulness of this processing is based on your consent. Any consent given can be revoked at any time. The revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the data processed until the time of revocation.

3.4 Due to legal requirements or in the public interest

In addition, we are subject to various legal obligations and other binding regulations in connection with the obligatory processing of your data.


4. Data transfer and transmission abroad

We only disclose your data to third parties within the scope of our business activities and for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy if we are obliged to do so by law, court order, or official regulations, if the disclosure is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the performance of contracts and business activities or on the basis of your consent. These third parties include, in particular, the following categories of recipients: 

  • within the Feldenkrais network and community;
  • contractors such as providers, service providers for evaluating the benefits of the website (marketing purposes), service providers for IT services (data management, data storage, technical support, newsletter dispatch, etc.);
  • external business partners (e.g. suppliers) and experts in connection with our offers and services;
  • associations, organisations, and other bodies;
  • media;
  • domestic and foreign authorities, official bodies or courts;
  • other parties in potential and actual legal proceedings.

We process personal data not only in Switzerland. Your data may be processed both in the European Union/EEA and in any country in the world (including Israel and the USA). If the level of data protection in the country where the processing third party is located is deemed inappropriate for Swiss conditions or within the meaning of the GDPR (including the USA), we provide suitable data protection through appropriate guarantees (e.g., standard contractual clauses), unless there is a legal exception (e.g., your consent), the recipient is already subject to a legally recognised set of binding international agreements/rules (e.g. CH-USA Data Privacy Framework) to ensure data protection or we can rely on an exemption provision. Such contractual precautions (guarantees) partially compensate for weaker or missing legal protection, but not all risks can be completely excluded (e.g. from government access abroad).

Please also note that data exchanged via the Internet is often routed via third countries. Your data may therefore be sent abroad even if the sender and recipient are located in the same country.


5. Data security

We use appropriate technical and organisational measures in the systems to protect your data held by us against loss, destruction, alteration and unauthorised access by third parties. Security measures of a technical nature include, for example, encryption (including login data) and pseudonymisation of data, logging, access restrictions, and the storage of backup copies.

We also take our own internal data protection very seriously. Our partners and suppliers we commission are obliged to maintain confidentiality and to comply with the provisions of applicable data protection laws. They must also take appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect the data. Furthermore, they are only granted access to personal data to the extent necessary.

Our security measures are continuously adapted in line with technological developments. However, absolute protection cannot be guaranteed.


6. Cookies/tracking and other technologies

6.1 Use of cookies

Our website uses cookies. Our interest in optimising our website is, therefore, justified. Cookies are text files that are stored in the Internet browser or by the Internet browser on your computer system. The use of cookies serves to make the use of our website more pleasant for you.

We use so-called session cookies to recognise that you have already visited individual pages of our website. These are automatically deleted after you leave our site. In addition, we also use temporary cookies for user-friendliness, which are stored on your end device for a specified period. If you visit our website again to use our services, it is automatically recognised that you have already visited us and which entries and settings you have made so that you do not have to enter them again.

On the other hand, we use cookies to record the use of our website statistically and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimising our offer for you and, if necessary, to display information specifically tailored to you (online marketing). These cookies are automatically deleted after a defined period.

The data collected in this way is pseudonymised by technical precautions. It is, therefore, no longer possible for us to assign the data to the accessing user. The data is not stored together with other data.

When you visit our website for the first time, you will be informed by an info banner about using cookies for analysis purposes and referred to this Privacy Policy (info). In this context, you will also be informed about how to prevent the storage of cookies (settings). If cookies are deactivated on our website, it may no longer be possible to use all functions of the website to their full extent.

The procedure for checking and deleting cookies depends on the browser you are using. You can find information on this in the help menu of your browser (usually under the heading "Data Protection").

By using our website, you consent to the use of these techniques. If you do not wish to do so, you must set your browser or e-mail programme accordingly.

6.2 Analytics

We use Google Analytics on our website, a web analysis service provided by Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA, USA) and Google Ireland Ltd (Google Building Gordon House, Barrow St, Dublin 4, Ireland); both together "Google", whereby Google Ireland Ltd. is our data processor. Google Analytics uses cookies (text files) and similar technologies to collect certain information about the behaviour of individual users on or in the relevant website and the end device used (tablet, PC, smartphone, etc.) and thus enable the analysis of the use of the website.

The information generated by these performance cookies about the use of the website (incl. IP address) is transmitted to Google's server in the USA and stored there. We have configured the services so that the IP addresses of users of Google's websites within Europe are shortened before being forwarded to the USA so that they cannot be traced back. We have switched off the "Data transfer" and "Signals" settings.

Google provides us with reports and can be regarded as our data processor. However, Google also processes certain data for its purposes. Google may be able to conclude the identity of website visitors based on the data collected and, therefore, create personal profiles and link the data obtained to any existing user accounts of these persons. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required by law or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf. If you consent to the use of Google, you explicitly consent to such processing, which also includes the transfer of personal data to the USA and other countries. You can find more information on data protection from Google Analytics here

6.3 Social Media

We use so-called plug-ins from social networks such as YouTube on our website. The corresponding buttons/symbols are visible on our website. These elements are configured so that they are deactivated by default. By clicking on the buttons/symbols, the respective operators of the social networks can register that you are on our website, where you are located, and use this information for their own purposes. The processing of your data is the responsibility of the respective operator in accordance with their privacy policy. We do not receive any information about you from them.

If you communicate with us via such social networks or comment on or disseminate content from us, we collect the corresponding data and process it in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

When you visit our social media sites, data (e.g. on your user behaviour) may also be transmitted directly to the relevant provider or collected by them and processed together with other data already known to them (e.g. for marketing and market research purposes and to personalise platform content). Further information on data processing by social network providers, the countries in which they process your data, and your rights can be found in the privacy policies of the relevant social networks.


7. Duration of the processing of your data

We only process your data for as long as it is necessary for the respective purpose and the fulfillment of our legal obligations, including statutory retention periods (usually ten years, in some cases longer) or if you have given us your consent. We continue to process your data as long as we have a legitimate interest in storing it. This may be the case if we need personal data to enforce or defend against claims, for archiving purposes, and to ensure IT security.


8. Your rights

You have several choices when using this website. You can choose not to provide any data at all by not filling in any relevant forms or data fields on our website, blocking cookies and not using any of the personalised services available.

If you choose to provide personal data or provide it to us as part of our business relationship, you have the following rights in certain circumstances and when provided for by applicable law:

  • Right to information: you have the right to request information about personal data stored by us about you at any time. The information is generally provided free of charge.
  • Right to rectification: you have the right to request the rectification and completion of inaccurate personal data concerning you.
  • Right to restriction of processing: you have the right to request the restriction of data processing and/or to object to data processing.
  • Right to deletion (right to be forgotten): you have the right to request the deletion of personal data if the data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected if you revoke your consent, or if the data processing is not based on a legal obligation, for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims or another legal basis in accordance with applicable law.
  • Right to data portability: you have the right to request the personal data concerning you from us (right to data portability) or to request the transfer of your data to a third party designated by you.
  • Right to object: based on Applicable law, you have the right to object to the processing of your data for direct marketing or profiling in connection with direct marketing. You also have the right to object to the processing of data that we collect (public interest or legitimate interest) for specific reasons. If you assert an interest that outweighs our legitimate interests in an individual case, we will no longer process your data.
  • Right to withdraw consent under data protection law: based on applicable law, you have the right to withdraw your consent to data processing at any time. This does not affect the lawfulness of the data processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.

Your rights are not absolute. We reserve the right to assert the restrictions provided for by law. We will inform you accordingly.

If you wish to assert rights against us, please enclose a corresponding identification of your person.

Every person also has the right to enforce his/her claims in court or to lodge a complaint with the competent data protection authority. The competent data protection authority in Switzerland is the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner ( A list of the European Data Protection Authorities can be found on the website of the European Data Protection Board and here.


9. Subject to change

This Privacy Policy is not part of any contract with you. We reserve the right to change or amend this Privacy Policy at any time, in particular, if we change our data processing or if new legal provisions become applicable. The version published on this website is the current version; the new version will replace previous versions.
