This may include details such as your contact details and details of your interactions with BioCurate as well as your communication preferences.

Embedded content from other websites
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.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise 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.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Your contact information
Your personal data is created, stored and transmitted securely in a variety of paper and electronic formats. The processing of your personal data will be by fair means and will not be unreasonably intrusive.

You can withdraw your consent to our use of such personal information at any time; object to any processing of your personal data that we process on the lawful basis of legitimate interests, unless our reasons for the underlying processing outweighs your interests, rights and freedoms; or to ask us to delete personal data that we no longer have lawful grounds to process by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
