I have library cards from different libraries using BiblioCommons. Does BiblioCommons keep my data from all these libraries? What data? For how long?

BiblioCommons:

BiblioCommons does not store checkouts, past holds, or recently returned items unless the patron enables the Borrowing History feature. BiblioCommons retrieves that information from the respective Library’s integrated system (ILS) when the patron signs in. When the patron signs out, that information isn't stored by BiblioCommons.

BiblioCommons does store a patron’s name, library barcode, PIN/password, and patron number. If your date of birth and email address is in the ILS, or you provide it to BiblioCommons during registration, they store those too. BiblioCommons stores all user-generated content, such as book reviews. But they do not have patron addresses or phone numbers.
