Who we share your data with

We take your data seriously and do not share it with anyone. Seriously, not even my mom… and she’s harmless.

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.

The Bottom Line

We take your privacy seriously and although we use anonymous analytics tools to improve our website experience for you lovely people, we will never abuse your data or share it with any third parties. We are the first and only party, woo!

But if you have any problems, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
