Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who is your data shared with

Absolutely no one at any time except in an extreme circumstance which would include inflicting bodily harm to one’s self or others. This has never happened and in such instances the person’s account would be immediately deleted and blocked. If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email so this website shares with you only.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely, until deleted by you or by our volunteer team. Naturally, a comment would also be deleted if the topic commented on where deleted. Comments that are left on this website help the volunteer team or program recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. First post is held, after that your kind comments remain until they magically do not remain for some weird reason or indefinitely.

For users that register on our website, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their own personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information. TIP: First and Last name is not required.
