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.


How Long We Retain Your Data


If you fill out a form, subscribe for a mailing list, make a purchase, or leave a comment, the user data, comments and associated metadata are retained indefinitely.
