Embedded content from other websites

Analytics may collect information such as number of users and where users are coming from such as direct, social media, etc. It may also collect what country user is in, what time of day you are visiting, as well as what pages you visit, and what device you are using.
We use this non-personal information to track trends and analyze use on the site.

How long we retain your data
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.
For users that 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.
