User-submitted content and data ownership
While submitting content (User-submitted content), you entrust us with collecting and preserving personal data. This data consists of the submitted content itself, as well as anonymous identifiers. You remain in ownership of this data at any time. Solidarity Platform does not sell or share your data, and ensure that your rights remain respected to the best of our abilities.
For Comments, you have the ability to access, edit or delete your data by means of an identifier and key provided to you while submitting your comment.

Consequently, this also mean that we can’t respond to requests to edit/access data for Comments as we don’t have viable means to identify contributors and their submitted contents.
For Event submissions, since we have the ability to identify contributors and their submitted contents, you can contact us by email in the case you wish to access, alter or revoke your data. The data consists of (previously submitted) contact details, as well as submitted information related to the event.
You might as well read our Privacy and data policy for information related to your data ownership.
