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.


We take measures to have a secure website. It is impossible to be 100% secure, however. We recommend that you, as the user, take your own security measures while using our site or another site. If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.


We are in compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act. We do not produce content for or attract an audience of under the age of thirteen.
