How long we keep your data

If you leave a comment, it and its metadata are stored indefinitely. That way, we can automatically identify and approve each subsequent comment, rather than having them queued for moderation.

For users who register on our site (if any), we store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can view, edit or delete their personal information at any time (except that they cannot change their username). Site administrators can also view and edit this information.

What rights do you have regarding your data?

If you have an account on this site or have commented, you can request the export of a personal data file that we hold about you, including any information you provide to us. You may also request that we delete any personal information we hold about you. This does not include any data that we are required to store for administrative, legal and security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments can be verified by using the automatic spam detection service.
