6. How Long We Retain Your Data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This enables us to recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically, 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 they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
7. Your Rights Over Your Data
If you have an account on our site or have left comments, you have the right to request 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 personal data we hold about you. Please note that this does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
