Whom do we share your data with? How long do we save your data?
Comments and metadata are saved and stored indefinitely. This enables us to automatically recognise and approve follow-up comments instead of placing them in a moderation queue.

All users can see, edit and delete their personal information at any time (with the exception that they will not be able to change their user name). The administrators of the website can also see and edit this information.
