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.

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