Update: Access to and Control Over Information

This Privacy Notice describes the privacy practices for Llandaff & Monmouth DACBR (the Association) on this website. It applies solely to information collected by this website and advises about:

The Association is the sole owner of the information held on this site and only accesses and/or collects information voluntarily given to us via direct contact. The Association will not give such information to anyone unless legally required to do so.

This website relies on cookies to provide much of its functionality. By using our website with cookies enabled in your browser you are consenting to our use of cookies. If you decline the use of cookies on this site then your viewing experience will be inhibited and you will not be able to login, etc. To learn more about the use of cookies please see http://www.allaboutcookies.org/. Our usage of cookies is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on this website.

Viewing the Website when not logged in
This website automatically logs the IP address of visits made to it for administrative and/or security purposes. The logged IP addresses are not associated with an individual visitor and are not used to track visitors; there is no software code on this website which allows for this.

Website Accounts & Registration
It is not necessary to register an account to view the publicly available information on this website. However, it is necessary to have an account to:

For those who register an account, the website automatically records:

A User's account is automatically associated with Comments made on Articles and where a user submits Articles or Links for publication.

In order to register an account on this website you will be required to accept this Privacy Notice at the time of registration. Those who have previously registered an account will be required to accept this Privacy Notice at intervals of approximately one year.

We may very occasionally contact you by email to advise of important or urgent matters including, but not limited to, changes to this Privacy Notice. You may opt out of any future contacts of this type from us at any time by sending an email to .

Contact Details and Membership Records
This website's database is used for keeping a centralised list of Association members and their home tower.

This list is also used for the recording of members' contact details together with their preferences in respect of how they wish to be contacted, receive Annual Reports and the use of photographs of them in publications. This information is supplied by the members themselves and they are specifically required to give their consent for its electronic storage. None of this information can be viewed on publicly accessible parts of the website. It cannot be indexed or otherwise read by internet search engines and cannot be searched for on the website.

This information is used primarily for membership administration and is not shared with third parties. There is no link between these records and a member's website account.

Mailing Lists
It is not necessary to have a website account (see above) to subscribe to any of our Mailing Lists. Website accounts and Mailing List subscriptions are, however, automatically associated with each other where both exist and use the same email address.

In order to comply with legal duties imposed by GDPR, this website automatically records:

Mailing List subscribers have the ability to amend their subscription choices at any time. Only in exceptional circumstances, e.g. a subscriber having passed away, will the administrators of this website amend or edit Mailing List subscriptions other than in consultation with the subscriber.

This website contains links to other sites. Please be aware that the Association is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of other sites. Users need to be aware of this when they leave this website and read the privacy statements of other sites that collect personally identifiable information.

Information Sharing
The Association does not share this website's personal information with any third-party person or organisation. The Association does not use or allow 3rd-party advertising on this website or the tracking of visitors by 3rd-parties. This website does not yet sell goods or services electronically and so does not hold any personal payment information.

Information Security
The Association takes great care to protect personal information kept on this website. Information is protected both online at site and server level and also offline.

This website does not publish or disclose the personal information of its account holders or Mailing List subscribers. Officers and volunteers of the Association have domain email addresses of the type @llanmon.org.uk and, where published, these are software-cloaked to prevent electronic harvesting by automated scripts or web-bots. Normal practise is not to publish personal email addresses.

Interactions with the website are encrypted and transmitted in a secure way. Visitors can verify this by looking for a padlock icon in the web-browser's address bar and looking for "https://" at the beginning of the website's address.

Backups of this website are made several times per week. The latest two backups only are retained securely on the server in a location away from the website itself. Backups are a snapshot in time and include the website's software/code, files and its database at the time each backup is taken. Periodically, typically weekly, the latest backup is used to create an offline working copy of the website for development and testing purposes. This working copy of the website is held securely offline by the Webmaster and is itself backed up.

Access to and Control Over Information
Users of this website are entitled to ask for details of the personal information that this website holds about them.  This may include, but is not limited to:

Website account holders are able to download their personal information held on this website by logging in and visiting “Access to Personal Information (GDPR)” which is available under the "Home" menu item (when logged in). This will download their information to the User’s device in an .xml file. Requests are logged for administrative purposes. Other users, such as those who use our Mailing Lists, may request information by email to the Webmaster.

If you do not have a website account and do not subscribe to our Mailing Lists then it is highly unlikely that this website has any personally identifiable data or information about you. The Association and its Branches may have information beyond the website, e.g. Membership Records and Peal Records. For information that the Association and its Branches may hold about you beyond this website, please contact the Webmaster.

To delete your website profile (“right to be forgotten”) please contact the Webmaster.

Contacting us about this Privacy Notice
If you feel that we are not abiding by this Privacy Notice, please contact the Association by email to .

The Association will endeavour to acknowledge and respond to contacts and requests in a timely manner, but be advised that this website is administered on a voluntary basis and, as such, the Association reserves the right to respond to requests within 28 days.
