How long we keep your data
Suggested text: 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 in a moderation queue.
For users who register on our website (if any), all of their personal information data that they provide will be stored. Any user can view, edit or delete their personal information at any time (except for the username which cannot be edited). Website administrators can also view and edit such information.
