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.

Third Parties’ Access to Data
Where We Send Your Data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
We use Plug-ins that may track user data such as social sharing plug-ins that track when you share our content to social media or email. The plugins send request to third party APIs via website-vistor’s web browser to fetch information (like social shares, social comment count). This request made by web browser may include IP address, which can then be seen by the third-party that it’s being requested from. This API request doesn’t include any personal data of the website user other than the IP address.
