How long do we keep your information?
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata will be saved indefinitely. We do this so that any follow-up comments can be identified and automatically approved without having them queued for moderation.
For registered users of this website, we also store personal information provided by users in their profiles. All users can view, edit or delete their personal information at any time (except for the inability to change their username), and site administrators can also view and edit that information.
What rights do you have over your information?
If you have an account with this site, or have left a comment, you can request that we provide an export file of the personal data we hold about you, including all the data you have provided us. You can also ask us to erase all personal data about you. This does not include data that we must retain due to administrative, regulatory or security needs.
