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.

Information or Revocation, Correction, Deletion and Blocking

You are entitled to obtain information about your personally identifiable data that we have stored at any time and without reason. You are also entitled to request the correction of inaccurate data and the deletion or blocking of your personally identifiable data provided insofar as there is no legal obligation to retain such data. You can address the revocation and any request for information by sending an email to at any time.

We will delete any personally identifiable data if such data is no longer required for the purposes for which we have collected such data from you, except if we are requested by applicable law to store such data for a longer time period; in this event we will delete the data upon expiration of the required time period.
