When you post a comment, it and its information are saved eternally. This allows us to automatically recognize and accept any follow-up comments rather than holding them in a moderation queue.

We store the personal information provided by users who register on our website (if any) in their user profile. All users have the ability to see, amend, or remove their personal information at any time (with the exception of changing their username). Administrators of the website can also view and update that information.

Suggested text: You can request an exported file of the personal data we possess about you, including any data you have provided to us, if you have an account on our site or have posted comments. You can also ask us to delete any personal information we have on file for you. This excludes any data that we are required to store for administrative, legal, or security reasons.

Where we send your data
