Who we share your data with

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely.

All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
