How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so that we can recognize and approve the follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users who register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide on their user profiles. All users can view, edit or delete their personal information at any time (unless they cannot change their username). Web site administrators can also view and edit that information.

If you have an account on this site, or have left a comment, you can request to receive files that are exported from the personal data we have about you, including any data that you provide to us. You can also request that we delete any personal data we have about you. This does not include data that we must keep for administrative, legal or security purposes.
