All communications between your browser and our servers use the HTTPS protocol, which encrypts data before it travels over the network. In addition, passwords are not stored in clear text in our database but are encrypted using the latest password security technology. Finally, communications between our different servers are done on a private network that is not accessible from the outside.



Advertising does not offer advertising linked to the profile but only to the context of the pages consulted: the promotional zones display sponsored works, they appear on the home page or within the site and can show, for example, works of the "digital art" type if you visit the digital art portraits page, or painting, if you visit the painting page.

Where we do not have any advertising to display, we may use external providers such as Google Ad Exchange, which displays advertising generally based on your profile. Details of Google's GDPR compliance can be found on the following page:

Finally, some advertisers use external ad management platforms at In this case, we do not program a banner, but a "tag", i.e. an HTML code, which dynamically calls up the client's ads. In this case, the client has access to basic connection data (e.g. IP address), but NEVER to the data of members. The advertiser may also have access to information about you independently of (e.g. if you have data linked to Google, Facebook, or retargeting sites and there is an agreement between these companies and the advertiser, which may have access to some common data shared by Google, Facebook etc.). To object to this, you need to manage access rights with these platforms.

On Monorarts, your e-mail is protected from anyone who wants to acquire it without your specific permission. To contact you, all visitors must fill out a form that our server will process and send to your e-mail address. Under no circumstances can visitors access your real e-mail address at any time.


Other third parties

Other third parties may also be involved in the platform in the following ways:

  • Sharing buttons (Facebook, Twitter, instagram etc...) on most pages, which, when you are connected to these platforms and surf on monorarts.comwill store personal information according to their own rules.
  • Google Analytics, to better understand our audience, the information is however anonymous (IP anonymised).
  • As with most online communities, our moderators have limited access to member data, including account email address, date and time of last logins to the site with IP address, moderated or deleted content history and moderation history. Moderators do not have access to private messaging.


Member profile

The member record contains the information that you yourself have filled in at registration/editing, including the following information:

  • E-mail address
  • Personal username and password
  • Postcode/city/country
  • All other profile fields are optional and can be accessed directly on your member profile when you edit it.

Other elements can also be linked to your member profile:

  • All the content you have created with the profile, (works, blogs, articles, announcements etc...), contributions (comments, collections of favourites, messages on forums etc...). Most of the linked content is also directly visible on your profile
  • Your votes on content (polls in the forums, +1/-1 on forum posts or user reviews)
  • Data facilitating your use of the site (newsletter registration, mailing-forums, notifications, last messages read in the forums, etc.)
  • Your exchanges with other members using our internal messaging system
  • Your contacts with our hotline (exchange of messages with support)
  • Your "trust rating" which is a vote of confidence from other members when you make transactions, or receive a testimonial in your guestbook. We also keep data on the consultation of e-mails sent by our platform (newsletter and other e-mails). The objective is primarily statistical (to know the opening rate of a newsletter for example), however for reasons of data integrity, we keep the raw data, that is to say who opened which e-mail at what time, and which links were clicked.
  • In order to maintain harmony within the community, the team, including the moderators, have access to moderation tools that allow them to identify banned members who try to return, in particular the last use of each IP and cookie, as well as a moderation history.
