How long we retain your data

In the event that you leave a comment, both the comment and its metadata are kept forever. This is so that, rather than keeping them in a moderation queue, we can instantly identify and approve any follow-up comments.

We also keep the personal data that users enter in their user profiles when they register on our website, if any. All users are able to view, modify, or remove their personal data at any moment; however, they are unable to modify their username. Administrators of the website can view and change that data as well.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on our website or have left comments, you can request an exported file that contains all of the personal data we have on file about you, including any information you have provided. You can request that we remove any personal data we might have about you. This does not include any data that we are compelled to keep up for legal, administrative, or security purposes.

Where your data is sent

A spam detection solution that is automated may be used to review comments left by visitors.
