How long we keep your data
When you leave a comment, that comment and its metadata are stored forever. This way we can automatically recognize and approve follow-up comments instead of having to moderate them.
For users who register on our site (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can view, edit or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Site administrators can also view and edit this information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site or you have left comments, you may request an export file of your personal information that we have on you, including any information you have provided to us. You may also request that we delete any personal data we hold about you. This does not include data that we are required to retain for administrative, legal or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor responses may be monitored through an automated spam detection service.
