Who we share your data with
How long we hold your data
Breezy Blogs gives you the option of creating an account. If you decide to erase your account, none of your information is kept. If you do have an account, or provide contact information, data is kept based on the request. Something like comments from a guest will be held for a shorter period of time. Someone who requested a newsletter, will get newsletters until they unsubscribe. Analytic tracking will be kept for a year, and data in your account is kept until you update your info, or erase your account with us.
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are kept indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a queue.
