How long we store your data
When you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are kept indefinitely. This is so that we can automatically recognize and approve any follow-up comments instead of keeping 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 that they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have regarding your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you may request an export file of the personal data we have about you, including any data you have provided to us. You may also request that we delete any personal data we have about you. This does not include data that we are required to keep for administrative, legal or security purposes.
Where we send your data to
Comments from visitors can be monitored through an automated spam detection service.
