All actions on our website are monitored and recorded by Google Analytics. We do not attach any information entered into any form or checkout process to those analytics and they are used to simply monitor your activity on the store and used to improve the user experience.
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. This information is stored indefinitely. If you would like this information removed from our site please get in touch with us.
