The exception to this is where we are obliged to keep or that it is necessary to keep data for ongoing administrative, legal, or security purposes.
If you leave a comment or a product review, the comment or review 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.
