It is important for us to help you understand how we collect, process, and share your data. That is the aim of this privacy policy, and it applies to the activities of the association Effective Altruism Geneva, based in Geneva, Switzerland. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us anytime at

Information we collect

  • When you donate through any of our donation pages, we ask you for your name, your email address, and your country of residence. The latter allows us to determine which tax exemptions might apply.

  • If your donation is eligible for tax relief, we also ask you for your physical address, which is required by law to issue tax receipts in Switzerland.

  • If you apply for career or donation advice, we store any information you freely give to us.

  • Any data you share with us when signing up for our events.

  • Email communications when you contact us.

  • We use Google Analytics to track website traffic and usage anonymously.

How we use your information

We exclusively use your information in ways you consent to, or to comply with legal requirements. In particular:

  • We manually review every donation you make to EA Geneva, matching incoming payments on our accounts with donor records on our system.

  • We send you thank-you emails for your donations, and contact you via email if something is unclear or to establish a closer personal relationship with you.

  • We issue annual tax receipts for Swiss taxpayers, for which we also need your physical address.

  • We evaluate the information you freely share with us to offer you personalized career or donation advice.

  • We send updates via our newsletter if you signed up for it.
