Who we are
Our website address is: https://www.vintagesilvertones.com.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
We love and respect our customers and visitors. And, we hate big data. So there is no tracking on this site at all. The only data we collect is web server traffic; which contains basic technical information such as your IP address, browser, computer type & operating system, etc. There is no personally identifiable information in that data.
If you use our contact form to ask a question, sell a guitar, etc.; we store the information you submitted offline. It is not accessible to anyone outside of VintageSilvertones. And, it is not shared with any third-parties. We do use that information to respond to your questions. If you chose to be added to our mailing list there’s a very slight possibility you will receive a promotional email. Those will always have an unsubscribe option. But, it’s been 17 years and we have yet to send a promotional email. So don’t hold your breath.
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 visit our login page, 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.

Embedded content from other websites

Who we share your data with
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 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.
Where we send your data
