  • Communicate with you;
  • Screen our orders for potential risk of fraud
  • When in line with the preferences you have shared with us, provide you with information or advertising relating to our products or services

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.
