How long we keep 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 who 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 are your rights regarding your data?
If you have an account or comments on this site, you may request to receive an exported file of your personal data that we hold, including the data you have provided to us. Additionally, you may request the deletion of all your personal data that we hold. This does not include any data that we are required to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
