Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How long we retain your data

We respect your privacy, and to protect it, we have established a data retention policy:

  • For users who 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.
  • Inactive accounts: We will automatically delete accounts with no activity or logins for six months.
  • Personal information will be retained as long as you maintain an active account with us or as required by law.
  • Any data no longer needed for the abovementioned purposes will be securely and permanently deleted.
  • 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.

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.

If you have any questions, concerns, or requests regarding your privacy, please get in touch with us at

Where your data is sent

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time. Any changes will be posted on our website, and the date of the most recent update will be indicated at the top of the policy. We encourage you to review this policy periodically for any updates.

Your continued use of our services after posting changes to this policy constitutes your acceptance of those changes.

Thank you for entrusting us with your information. We are dedicated to maintaining your privacy and ensuring the security of your data.
