Garnet River encourages users to be aware when they leave our Websites and to read the privacy policies of each website they visit.

If you are a customer of one of our clients and would no longer like to be contacted by that client, please directly contact the client of which you are a customer.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment 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.
