How long we retain your data
When you submit a comment, its metadata is retained until (if) you tell us to remove it. We use this data so that we can recognize you and approve your comments.
If you are an authorized user of our website as well, we also store the personal information you provide in your user profile until (if) you tell us to remove it. Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
How we protect your data and what data breach procedures we have in place
To protect user data we are entirely using SSL/HTTPS throughout our site. This encrypts our user communications with the servers so personal identifiable information is never captured by third parties without authorization.
In case of a data breach, System administrators will immediately go through affected users and will attempt to reset passwords if needed after informing the user.

If you have an account on this site 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.
