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
When you leave a comment, that comment and the metadata of that comment will be saved forever. This way we can recognize and approve follow-up comments automatically instead of having to moderate them.
For users who register on our site (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can view, edit or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Site administrators can also view and edit this information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site or have left comments, you can request an export file of the personal information we hold about you, including any information 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 that we are required to keep for administrative, legal or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
