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.

We only store data with our hosting provider Flywheel. Flywheel is a voluntary participant in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework (“EU Framework”), which you can learn more about at the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Privacy Shield site at https://www.privacyshield.gov.  As a participant, Flywheel is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission and any other authorized U.S. agency.

How long we retain your data

We retain personal data only for as long as necessary to provide the services you have requested and thereafter for a variety of legitimate administrative purposes. Records of browsing behavior are retained for thirty days.

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.

Once your data is received, it will be stored within the Flywheel data environment. We follow generally accepted standards to store and protect the personal data we collect, both during transmission and once received and stored.

We will only pass on the personal information collected if we have a legal obligation to do so. We will not share your information with any Third Parties not listed on our privacy policy.
