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

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
