Who we are
Silvobeat is a vegan food website owned and operated solely by Silvia Morris and Stuart Morris (“we”, “us”, or “our”).
We are located in Melbourne, Australia.
Our website address is primarily https://www.silvobeat.com (we may occasionally use https://www.silvobeat.blog or https://www.silvobe.at) (collectively “Silvobeat”, “our website”, “the website”, or “this website”).
This policy is governed by the laws of the State of Victoria, Australia.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
If you send images to us via social media or email, you should avoid sending images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included, which in turn will prevent us from being able to retrieve the location. If photos are sent to us with embedded location data, we will not remove that information.
We may, with your permission, reproduce the submitted images for us on our social media accounts and/or this website.
- Silvobeat stores one cookie for six months that contains your preference of whether to store analytics cookies.
- This website uses Cloudflare for security and website performance, which stores one cookie for one year. Cloudflare Support has documentation on what this cookie is and how it’s used.
- We use Google Analytics to track the performance of this website, which stores several cookies. These are retained from between 30 seconds and two years, depending on the particular cookie.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this website may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if you visited the other website.
Website performance and security monitoring
Although we use other social media platforms, we do not have a business account on those platforms.
If you’ve emailed us previously and no longer wish to receive emails from us, please send us a message, and we’ll remove you from our mailing lists.

Who we share your data with
Messages and emails sent to us
If you email us, we will store your name, email address, Gravatar (if you use one), and message with our email provider.
We do not utilise a mailing list service; if we chose to do so in the future, we will amend this policy.
Facebook and Pinterest receive information from us about you, particularly if you’re logged into any such account when you visit Silvobeat.
Silvobeat uses a webpage building plugin called Beaver Builder, who state:
Website performance and security monitoring
If you submit a photo to us, we may store that with one or more of our photo storage providers:
in addition to storing it on the service by which you sent it to us (for example, our Instagram inbox if you direct messaged us, or our email provider if you emailed the photo to us).
We do not currently support submitting messages, comments, or other user-generated content via the website; if we chose to do so in the future, we will amend this policy.
Technical support for us
We may, from time to time, need to provide temporary access to a third party provider to resolve technical difficulties with their service (for example, our hosting provider or the developer of a plugin used on this website may need to access the administrative backend of this website, the developer of our project management service may need to access our account, etc). In such instances, we will attempt to limit access as much as we can reasonably do so.
Shared services notice
Silvobeat is a project run by solely by us. We run other projects and companies as outlined on our portfolio website Dual Ascent (for which we are likewise the only people directly engaged or employed).
In order to minimise costs, we run a single suite of systems and services (for example, a single email provider, a single project management provider, etc.) shared across all of our projects and companies. We are the only people who have access to the systems and services we use to operate these projects and companies.
How long we retain your data
If you contact us via social media or email, we will retain your message for as long as is necessary, which may be indefinitely.
If you submit a photo to us, we will retain the images indefinitely.
Google Analytics purges data associated with cookies, user identifiers, or advertising identifiers after 36 months.
What rights you have over your data
You can 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. While we will honour any such requests, we cannot provide any certification such activity has taken place.
Where we send your data
Silvobeat is hosted by Flywheel (using a theme developed by ThemeBeans and a webpage builder plugin developed by Beaver Builder). Flywheel is based in the USA and we use their Singapore data centre.
We use a number of social networks, for which we do not control what information is stored or where it’s stored.
Our email provider is based in Melbourne, Australia and hosted in the USA and the Netherlands.
We use Basecamp for project management, which is based and hosted in the USA.
How we protect your data
We are the only people who have access to any of the systems and services used in the operation of Silvobeat.
All systems and services we use are protected by strong passwords, and two-factor authentication (where offered).
We use what’s called HTTP Strict Transport Security, or HSTS, which forces your browser to secure the connection to our website, even if you’ve never visited Silvobeat before (and therefore don’t know we support TLS/SSL). You can verify this using Chrome’s HSTS preload list (other browsers use the same list).
We don’t sell your data
We do not on-sell any information you have supplied to us.
What third parties we receive data from
We receive data from Flywheel, Cloudflare, and Google Analytics regarding, among other things, the number of visitors to the website, what area they’re located in, if there’s any potential threats to the website, which pages they visited, etc. This allows us to measure the performance of Silvobeat.
We receive data from Facebook and Pinterest about you, particularly if you’re logged into any such account when you visit Silvobeat, or if you interact with our social media accounts. This allows us to measure the performance of our social media engagement.
