Who we share your data with
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include web hosting parties who assist us in operating this website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release this information when it’s appropriate to comply with the law, enforce sites policies, or protect ours and others’ rights, property, or safety.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, 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 users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users 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
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. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
How we protect your data
While we take the upmost measures to protect and secure all personal data, we do not guarantee absolute security, as no electronic transmission is 100% secure. In our goal to ensure your personal data is as safe as possible, our site holds a SSL certificate. It contains third party integrations that processes your information on our behalf. These industry standard services regularly scan for vulnerabilities and threats to security. In addition, this data is never used outside of its intended purpose.
We are not responsible for any unauthorized acts by others and we assume no liability for any disclosure of information due to errors intransmission, unauthorized third party access (ex: hacking) or other acts beyond our reasonable control. In the event of a data breach, we will notify you as soon as possible.
