How long we retain your data

General Retention

If you leave a comment, we retain the comment and its metadata indefinitely. This is to facilitate the automatic recognition and approval of any follow-up comments instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users who register on our website (if any), we store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can view, edit, or delete their personal information at any time, except for their username. Website administrators also have access to view and edit this information.
