We value your privacy. We may ask for some personal data for verification purposes when you leave a comment, but that data will never be sold or offered to third parties.
On this page, we explain the types of data collected and how it’s used.
We are also working toward GDPR compliance, allowing users ways to opt out of data collection. Logged-in users can manage their account by visiting their profile page to change their settings or delete their accounts.
Here are some of the types of data we save:

If you create a Liliputing account for commenting and login using Facebook, Twitter, Google, WordPress, or another supported third-party service, we will also save your account ID in our database.
You can delete your Liliputing account from your profile page.
When you use our contact page to send us a message, we ask that you enter a username and email address. These will not be shared with third parties, and will not be saved in our database. But they will be visible to Liliputing administrators who may want to get in touch to follow-up on news tips or respond to questions.
