Privacy policy

Search engines will be able to see what you post. Content you post may be copied, shared, or re-posted on the Site and on other parts of the internet in ways that you and we cannot control.
We have made it easy for you to delete posted content from your personal account, and also to delete your account altogether (there’s a link to do so on your personal settings page). However, we may store backups of your content on our servers, even after it is deleted or after you delete your account.
