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). The website administrator can also see and edit that information.  Once TBEC has been notified that an individual no longer wishes to be a part of TBEC, their information will be permanently removed.  If the organization desires to continue its membership, contact information for a new individual that will represent the organization will be obtained and added to the organization’s profile.  If the organization no longer wishes to be a member of TBEC, all information will be permanently deleted.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us.
