If you leave a review, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up reviews or  disputes that may arise.

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.
