Who we are
Our website address is: https://monksilver.org
Under data protection legislation, we have a legal obligation to protect your personal information. We take appropriate security measures to safeguard your data and apply security standards and controls to prevent any unauthorised access to it. We also undertake to only hold your information for as long as is necessary for providing a service to you.
When you visit our website no name, address or specific user details are recorded from site visits, we do capture IP addresses but we will not attempt to identify individuals from such information unless necessary to investigate a breach of law or regulation. We will retain this information for 24 months.
We do not pass on your details to any third party or government department unless you give us the permission to do so or the law requires/permits it.
You can request to see a copy of your personal information that we hold by submitting a subject access request.
If you choose to complete any of our online forms, we will use the personal information you have provided to deal with your request. This may mean we need to pass your details on to a third-party service provider we use to provide services on our behalf, in the course of dealing with your request. These third parties are obliged to keep your details securely and use them only to fulfil the request.
If you have any concerns or questions relating to Data Protection or this Privacy Statement then please contact us.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you are required to login, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year.

Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited other websites.
Who we share your data with
In the event you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.
How long we retain your data
Should you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
