Who we share your data with
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.
How long we keep your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata will be retained 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 they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit this information.
What rights do you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or leave 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 ask us to erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data that we are obligated to keep for administrative, legal or security purposes.
Where is your data being sent
Visitor comments can be checked through an automatic spam detection service.
