We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can automatically recognize and approve any follow-up comments instead of holding them to be moderated.

Links to Other Websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.) or links to third-party websites, plug-ins, and applications. Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if you had visited the other website.
Our website utilizes a standard technology called “cookies” and server logs to collect information about how our site is used. Information gathered through cookies and server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our site, and the websites visited just before and just after our own, as well as your IP address. Cookies do not give us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.
A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Once you agree, the cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes, and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.
If you leave a comment on our site, you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
What Rights You Have Regarding Your Data
If you have left comments on a blog post, 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.
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. We have put in place security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used, altered, disclosed, or accessed without authorization. However, no method of transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. While we aim to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

If a parent or guardian of a child who has provided us with such personal information would like the information deleted from our records, he or she should contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by using the contact form on this website.
