When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data displayed in the comment form, along with the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you leave a comment on our site, you may opt-in to saving your name, email address, and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for a set period.

We do not share your personal data with any third-party entities except as necessary to provide services to the Website, conduct our business operations as described in this policy, or as legally required.
If you leave a comment on the Website, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically, eliminating the need for them to be moderated.
For users that register on our Website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. Users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (username cannot be changed). Website administrators can also view and edit that information.
