Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this website may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email. We do not otherwise share your data with anyone or any other website unless we have legal authority or a legal obligation to do so.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment on the website, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For visitors that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All visitors to the website 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.
What rights you have over your data
We may only use personal information for the purpose it has been collected, or for a consistent purpose, unless another use is specifically authorized at law. If you have an account on this website, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any of your personal data that we hold. This does not include any data that we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor’s comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. We do not otherwise send your data anywhere.
