Who we are

Our website address is:

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

If you have contacted us via our Contact Forms, or signed up for our newsletters, your data is held securely by Solid Silver Ltd either within the internal secure CRM or via our MailChimp account. If you are a subscriber to the magazine you are also a member of the Silver Travel Club as widely advertised and notified across our media. You will always be able to opt out of any level of contact, including your membership.

Mailing lists and promotions

If you are responding to one of our subscription promotions via social media in 2018 please be aware that we will be adding you to our mailing list as we will need to confirm your subscriptions, but other information will be requested on a need-to-know basis, such as postal addresses, phone numbers etc. You don’t need to opt in to anything you don’t want but we cannot post you a magazine without your address.

We will always advise you at point of response whether we will add you to our mailing list or not, and always offer you an option to opt out should you change your mind.


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 have an account and you log into this site, 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. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

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 the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


Who we share your data with

We do not share your information outside of Solid Silver Ltd except with regard to Silver Travel Club which is an agency acting on our behalf solely for this purpose and no other.

How long we retain your data

If 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 those of you on a mailing list, we endeavour to check regularly to ensure you still want to stay with us, and always offer an easy opt-out.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile (if created). 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.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. Otherwise all data is held by Solid Silver Ltd

Additional information

How we protect your data

At Solid Silver Ltd we take your security very seriously and we ensure your data is stored either securely on our internal CRM or within the secure platform of MailChimp, which we use for staying in touch with you. You may at any time contact us to check, edit or remove the data we hold on you but we pledge to offer regular opportunities for doing this anyway. We do not share your data with any third parties outside of our Silver Travel Club provider. And we ensure that our security measures are kept up to date to protect you from potential threat or exposure.

What data breach procedures we have in place

At Solid Silver Ltd we ensure that any of our team responsible for the handling of data is carefully trained and monitored. In the unlikely event of a breach we are able to track the breach and we have allocated staff members who are tasked with managing this event. We will notify you regardless of any perceived security risk or otherwise as we believe you have a right to know, and we will always ensure that any weak spots are identified and resolved – before any breaches occur wherever possible.

What third parties we receive data from

At Solid Silver Ltd from time to time we extrapolate data from third party sources such as social media platforms or via PR companies. We handle that data in exactly the same responsible way that we handle all our data and we always offer an opportunity for anyone whose data is held to opt out immediately and without question.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

At Solid Silver Ltd our profiling and analysis is human and not automated. Our users’ data however may have been used for anonymous profiling via Facebook or Google Analytics but we endeavour to protect users from unauthorised or irregular usage of data or performance analysis.
