Who do we share your data with? How long do we keep your data?
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are kept indefinitely. This is so that we can recognise and approve subsequent comments automatically, rather than keeping them in a moderation box. For users who register on our website (if any), we also use 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 user name). Website administrators can also view and edit this information. What rights do you have over your data? If you have an account or have left comments on this website, you can request to receive an export file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided. You can also request that we delete any personal data we have about you. This does not include any data that we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal or security purposes.
