Who we share your data with
From time to time, we may require the services of a web developer in order to upgrade or change technical aspects of this website. If so, we may disclose your personal data information only to the chosen contractor/s and affiliated organisations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on my behalf or to provide services available at my website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others.
Some of those contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using the forums.mfdevco.com website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them subject to the requirements of the law.
We will not rent or sell personal data to anyone.
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.

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.
