How Long We Retain Your Data

When you leave a comment, both the comment and its associated metadata are retained indefinitely. This is done to facilitate the automatic recognition and approval of follow-up comments, thereby eliminating the need to place them in a moderation queue.

For users who register on our website (if applicable), we store the personal information they provide in their user profile. Users have the ability to view, edit, or delete their personal information at any time, with the exception of the username, which cannot be changed. Website administrators also have access to view and modify this information.

If you have an account on our site or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file containing the personal data we hold about you, including any information you have supplied to us. Additionally, you may request the deletion of any personal data we have on record for you. This does not encompass data we are legally obligated to retain for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where Your Data is Sent
