If you’d like to request any information that you have shared is edited or removed from the site, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Accessing your information

How we keep your personal data safe
This website does not ask you to submit any personal or identifiable information. However, if you choose to send us personal information, it will be over the internet, which is never 100% secure or reliable. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
