Who I share your data with

While I keep most of the data in this Website databases, some of the data is shared with other third-party services. – when you subscribe to my blog or comments, or like an article, the data described above under “Subscriptions to Notifications” and “Likes” is sent to

How long I retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

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.
