Danse Suisse (hereafter referred to as «we» or «us») respects the privacy of its members and website users. We are committed to treating the information you provide us with due care and responsibility, at all times and in compliance with the relevant data protection regulations and our data protection policy.

The personal data we process is provided by data subjects for the following purposes:

• application for membership,

• application for inclusion in our professional registers,

• registration for further training courses,

• registration for events and projects we organise.

Sensitive personal data may be provided to us by data subjects or third parties for the following purposes:

• projects to promote young talent (health data),

• professional registers (data on criminal and administrative sanctions),

• our activities as a professional association and labour organisation (procedures relating to places of training and employment relationships).

Insofar as we are able to verify this, we only collect and process personal data from children with the consent of their legal representatives. Persons under the age of 16 must request the consent of their legal representatives before sending us any personal data.

The personal data provided to us will only be processed for the purposes of fulfilling our mandates within the above-mentioned frameworks. It is only passed on to third parties with the explicit consent of the persons concerned. Data relating to professional registers is published on our website; the persons concerned are informed accordingly.


We store the personal data physically and/or electronically on our own server. The data backup from the server is encrypted and sent to Germany. The Microsoft 365 data (Exchange / e-mail) is stored on Microsoft's Swiss servers. For information on electronic storage, we rely on the information provided by our provider.

We will retain your personal data for as long as is necessary to comply with applicable laws, or as we deem appropriate, or for as long as this is necessary for the purposes for which your data was originally collected. We will block or delete your personal data as soon as it is no longer needed and in any event after the maximum retention period required by law has expired.

You may request the deletion of your personal data at any time by e-emailing us at We will comply with your request with immediate effect, unless we are obliged to retain your data for other reasons, such as statutory provisions, or unless we need this data to enforce legal claims.


We will pass on your personal data only with your explicit consent, or if there is a legal obligation to do so or if this is necessary to enforce our rights, in particular to enforce claims arising from a contractual relationship. In addition, we will only pass on your data to third parties if this is necessary for contract execution. To this end, we may pass on the necessary data to external service providers. These service providers will use your data solely to process orders and for no further purposes.

If you are applying for membership with the advantage of dual membership (members of a regional grouping), you authorise us to check with the organisation concerned that you are a member.

We are also entitled to pass on your data to external service providers in order to safeguard your economic, legal and non-material interests (e.g. for marketing purposes or to improve online services). In connection with software tools, we utilise services provided by Google Inc. («Google Analytics»), Google Maps, Hotjar and Campaign Monitor. Data collected in connection with using these software tools may be transferred to servers in the United States. More detailed information about any data collected and shared is available at

Data may be communicated abroad, in particular to the United States, through the use of products such as Microsoft 365, Google Recaptcha, Google Fonts and other similar tools.


You will only receive a newsletter from us with your explicit approval, either when you apply for membership or by registering on our website. For the registration on our website, we use the so-called «double opt-in procedure,» i.e. we will only send you a newsletter by e-mail if you have expressly confirmed to us beforehand that we should activate the newsletter service. To this end, we will send you a confirmation e-mail upon registration. We will ask you to confirm that you wish to receive our newsletter by clicking a designated link enclosed in our confirmation e-mail. If you register for the newsletter, your e-mail address will be used together with your consent for our advertising purposes until you unsubscribe from the newsletter. You can unsubscribe at any time, but this will not affect the data processed before you unsubscribed. We are entitled to commission third parties with the technical handling of advertising measures and are entitled to pass on your data for this purpose. We will, however, not pass on your data for other purposes without your explicit consent.

No personal data is stored in the cookies used. We are thus unable to draw any conclusions about your identity based on cookie technology. Only pseudonymised information is generated in this way.
