myClubs’ offer is aimed at both private individuals and companies that want to offer their employees a wide range of leisure/sports activities.

As a user of the myClubs Platform, you must first register for our myClubs Platform by providing your personal details (via our website www.myclubs.com or our myClubs app). Depending on which product you choose, you can then book and attend either a subscription for sports sessions or a prepaid product for prepaid sports sessions with our myClubs partners (also often online). Please also read our General Terms and Conditions (GTC), which are agreed for every user and can be accessed at https://www.myclubs.com/ch/en/general-terms-and-conditions/.

2. WE PROTECT YOUR DATA!

When you use the myClubs Platform and/or visit our website www.myclubs.com, data processing is involved for which myClubs is responsible. If your personal data is processed, the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act (DSG), the Data Protection Ordinance (DSV) and the Ordinance on Data Protection Certifications (VDSZ) apply. The protection of your privacy is very important to us. In this Privacy Policy, we provide you with information about what personal data we process in a fashion relevant for data protection law when you use our services or visit our website, and for which purposes.

Users’ health or performance data is not processed by myClubs.

In connection with the myClubs Platform and our website, no automated decision-making or profiling (Art 5 lit f DSG) takes place. In the absence of a legal obligation, we have not appointed a Data Protection Officer.

All designations in this Policy refer to persons of any gender.

3. WHO IS AFFECTED?

Based on the mediation contracts concluded with us, we distinguish between the following data subjects:

  • You are a visitor to our website or use the myClubs app (iOS/Android) and have not yet registered;

  • You are our "B2C customer" because you have already registered or have already privately purchased a myClubs product;

  • You are a "B2B user" because you are an employee of a myClubs corporate customer ("B2B customer");

4. LEGAL BASIS

We base the processing of your personal data on the following grounds:

  • Your consent (Art 6 (7) lit a DSG);

  • The fulfilment of our contractual obligations in the context of our mediation of sporting contracts, the implementation of pre-contractual measures carried out at your request, and the fulfilment of our contractual obligations to process for personalised advertising (Art 16 (1), Art 17 (1) lit b Z 2 DSG);

  • Our legal obligations (Art 6 (1) DSG);

  • The protection of our legitimate interests, such as efficient marketing, the enforcement and defence of claims and the fulfilment of contracts with third parties, unless your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms, which require the protection of your personal data, are overridden (Art 6 DSG).

5. WHAT DO WE PROCESS?

We process the following personal data:

First and last name, myClubs membership number, password, email address, gender, date of birth, legal age, address, payment data, if applicable company affiliation, QR code, IP address, log-in data for the current session and session ID, booking data of users (location of the sports facility, type of sport, booking date and time, date and time of the sports session, check-in time, location when scanning the QR code), photo, phone number, Facebook ID or Apple ID if applicable, Apple Vendor ID or FCM registration token if applicable.

6. FOR WHAT PURPOSE?

We process this personal data for the following purposes (Art. 6 (3) DSG):

  • So that we can communicate with you for our cooperation and provide and invoice our services for you (in particular for contract initiation, customer and user administration, partner administration, correspondence with partners, users and customers, processing of electronic payment transactions, brokering of partners' sports offers, proof of valid membership, accounting/bookkeeping, billing with partners, invoicing, allocation of users to B2B customers, transfer of data to B2B customers for billing purposes, provision and operation of company feeds),

  • To enable us to keep you informed using advertising and to improve our offering to you (in particular for marketing and personalised advertising measures and the management, including sending, of electronic advertising (email, SMS, push messages), optimisation of our offer, creation of statistics and graphics),

  • For security purposes (i.e. identity verification, securing and operating the myClubs Platform, fraud detection and prevention, detection of security vulnerabilities, traceability of security measures, technical support, traceability of access),

  • To enable us to enforce our claims if necessary (in particular for the dunning process, for the enforcement and defence of claims and for the preservation of evidence),

  • To fulfill legal obligations, in particular our storage obligations.

7. REGISTRATION

Regardless of whether you are a B2C customer or B2B user, you must first register for the myClubs Platform either via our website www.myclubs.com or via the myClubs app. For this purpose, we process the following personal data from you:

  • Email address, password and IP address

  • Your confirmation of legal age

  • Log-in time and session ID

Please confirm your email address immediately by clicking on the registration link we email you. We process the time of your registration and calling of the confirmation link in our system – in particular for the purposes of contract fulfilment/security and technical support.

When you register on our Platform, we collect your IP address for technical reasons, but we do not store it separately. Each time you log in to the myClubs Platform, we also process your log-in time, the duration of your session and your session ID.

We obtain confirmation that you are of full legal age, as most sports providers and sports facility operators require users to be of age to use their services.

If you choose to use our services through your Facebook and/or Apple account, this is how we proceed: You can log in via your valid Facebook or Apple account. In this case, in addition to the registration details and your email address stored with Facebook or Apple, myClubs also processes your Facebook or Apple ID or, if you register via the Apple ID, your first and last name and, if applicable, confirmation of your gender and legal age.

We also check whether the email address you provide matches the email address provided to us by a B2B customer. In this way, we give you access to your employer's products.

Once you have registered, we will assign you a myClubs membership number and you can log in with your myClubs account and voluntarily add your full name, telephone number, address and a photo of yourself.

You can change your password, cookie settings, payment details, email address and telephone number at any time via your account. However, the new email address or telephone number you provide will not be saved until you confirm the hyperlink or code sent to this new address or telephone number.

8. PRODUCTS AND PAYMENT PROCESSING

As a B2C customer, you can browse and purchase the various products offered by myClubs via your account. In order to purchase a product, you must enter your first and last name, gender, date of birth, address and, for some products, your phone number, as well as agreeing to our General Terms and Conditions, available at http://www.myclubs.com/ch/en/general-terms-and-conditions. In addition, in accordance with § 2 Z 3 of myClubs GTC, you are obliged to upload a current photo of yourself and to provide and verify a phone number. Both serve the fulfilment of the contract – and monitoring to prevent the misuse of the products – and are in our legitimate interest.

Once you have selected a product, a payment service provider window will open automatically for you to process your payment. Depending on your preferred payment method (credit card, Klarna, SEPA direct debit, etc.), the payment service provider will request personal data on our behalf for the processing of payments, such as credit card number, expiry date, card validation code, IBAN, BIC and/or account holder name. The respective payment service provider processes the payment data entered by you on our behalf in accordance with the GDPR for billing purposes, even if you do not show up.

9. BOOKING AND ATTENDING SPORTS SESSIONS

As a user, you can book sports sessions with our myClubs partners directly and easily via the myClubs Platform. When you use the services of our myClubs partners, the partner sees your first and last name, your membership number, and your photo as part of contract fulfilment – via a separate partner account provided by us. The partner receives your photo from us so that they can check your identity and prevent misuse of our products (e.g. by passing on access data).

If our partners use digital online booking tools with a direct connection to the myClubs Platform and you would like to access the sports offerings of such a partner, the personal data necessary for the verification of your membership – namely first name, last name, membership number – will also be passed on to the provider of this booking tool for this purpose. The providers then process this data on their own responsibility. If you have any questions, we’ll be happy to provide further information at dataprotection@myclubs.com.

If you have booked a sports session, you can check in at the partner’s location using your QR code, which generates the ticket for participation: To do this, you scan the QR code provided in the check-in area of our partner via the myClubs app. In these cases, check-in takes place by scanning the QR code and presenting the ticket generated in your myClubs app.

10. PUSH-NOTIFICATIONS

We send you push notifications, for example to remind you of upcoming booked workouts or to send you links to sports sessions. To do this, we process either your Apple Vendor ID (for Apple/IOs users) or your FCM registration token (for Google/Android users).

11. FRAUD CONTROL

In order for us to protect against fraudulent usage, you must upload a recent photo before booking a sports session for the first time. We store this photo and pass it on to the individual sports providers and sports venues in fulfilment of our contract and to protect our legitimate interests. We also process your location at the time of reading out the QR code generated for the use of a booked sports session and the IP address used for this purpose. This data processing serves the purposes of contract fulfilment and fraud control as well as the assertion and defence of claims and the protection of our legitimate interests.

12. ADVERTISING AND MARKETING

If you agree to receive electronic advertising, we will include your email address in our distribution list and send you occasional newsletters and electronic advertising. For this purpose, we process your first and last name, title/gender and email address. You can also unsubscribe – with immediate effect – from receiving electronic advertising at any time by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the end of each advertising email from us.

13. SPECIAL DATA PROCESSING IN CONNECTION WITH B2B USERS

13.1. REGISTRATION AND PURCHASE OF B2B PRODUCTS

If you want to use your employer’s B2B products as an employee, you must verify the registration link we send you by email to activate your access. In order to be able to select and use a specific B2B product from your employer, you must also agree to the myClubs GTC and provide your first and last name, gender, date of birth, phone number, a photo and – in the case of B2B products that are partly paid for by yourself – your address and payment details.

If you want to access your employer’s B2B product, you must also consent to the transfer of your personal data to your employer for billing purposes.

13.2. WHAT DOES MY EMPLOYER SEE?

Your employer has access to the following personal data concerning you via their admin account:

  • first and last name

  • (currently stored) email address

  • photo

  • the B2B product you have chosen

We also obtain your consent so that we can disclose to your employer, upon request, the number of sports sessions you use per month so that they may claim them for tax purposes. However, your employer will not receive any information about the location, type of sport, sport provider or time of the sport sessions you have booked.

13.3. CHANGE FROM B2B TO B2C AGENCY CONTRACT

If your employment relationship with our B2B client ends, they can terminate your access to the B2B products themselves. If your employer terminates their contractual relationship with us, you will also lose access to these B2B products, but you will be able to purchase B2C products. We continue to store and process your personal data on the basis of our legal obligations, your consent and our legitimate interests even if you do not purchase a B2C product. You can revoke your consent at any time.

13.4. SHARED RESPONSIBILITY

Insofar as data processing processes take place in connection with the performance of the Corporate Fitness contracts for which we are jointly responsible with the respective B2B customer (in particular for the purpose of ensuring B2B users’ access to the Corporate Fitness product and the processing of personal data of B2B users in lists of booked sports sessions), we conclude agreements with our B2B customers.

With regard to these data processing processes, the B2B customer is responsible for safeguarding your rights as a data subject, in particular according to Articles 6 ff DSG and for fulfilling their information obligations according to Articles 19 DSG. Of course, you can still contact us directly with your enquiries, requests or complaints in this regard.

14. TEST SUBSCRIPTIONS

If you want to test the sports products we offer as part of special promotions, you must also register as described above, as well as providing your phone number, giving your consent to the processing of your personal data and accepting the GTC of myClubs. To verify your phone number, we will send you a PIN that you can use to activate your user account and book sports sessions. The verification of your phone number is necessary for contract fulfilment and due to our legitimate interests for reasons of fraud control.

If you decide not to purchase a myClubs B2C product after your trial session, we will still process your personal data, on the basis of your consent, for contract fulfilment purposes, due to our legal obligations and our legitimate interests.

15. DELETION OF DATA

Unless you have not consented to the processing of data to a greater extent, we are not subject to any legal obligations that entitle us to process data for a longer period of time (e.g. due to retention obligations), our legitimate interests, in particular in the enforcement of and defence against claims, do not entitle us to longer data processing, we will delete your personal data three years after the end of the calendar year in which your last product contract ended or your “suspension” from a B2B product or the termination of the contractual relationship between myClubs and your employer.

16. WORKING WITH THIRD PARTIES

17. TECHNICAL AND ORGANISATIONAL SAFEGUARDS

We have implemented organisational and technical safeguards – which we continually evaluate and adapt as necessary – to protect the personal data of yours that we store and process.

To this end, we have implemented extensive access, entry and access controls. In this way, we ensure that only authorised persons have access to your personal data and that we can track authorised access. If it is possible for the respective data processing, the primary identifiers of the personal data are also removed in the respective data application and stored separately (pseudonymisation).

Rapid recoverability of data is guaranteed by backup systems. Statutory deletion periods are observed via standardised checking processes.

We protect your data to the best of our knowledge and belief against loss, destruction, falsification, manipulation, unauthorised access and unauthorised disclosure. However, data transmission on the internet can have security gaps and cannot be completely protected against access by third parties.
