2. What personal data we collect and why
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
However, you may prefer to disable cookies on this site and on others. The most effective way to do this is to disable cookies in your browser. We suggest consulting the Help section of your browser (e.g. check: Chrome, Mozilla, Safari) or taking a look at this Wikipedia article.
2.3 Embedded content and links to other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. SoundCloud tracks, videos, images, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
3. 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.
