If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


If you fill out a contact form on our website we send and store that data to address your concern. Our website administrators are sent an email with your provided information so we can address your concern. Additionally, we store your form entries in a local database, incase of data loss in the sent email.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. We try to remove all metadata from images and compress them, but visitors to the website may be able download and extract any location data from images on the website.

We sends images to the WPMU DEV servers to optimize them for web use. This includes the transfer of EXIF data. The EXIF data will either be stripped or returned as it is. It is not stored on the WPMU DEV servers.

We uses a third-party email service (Drip) to send informational emails to the site administrator. The administrator’s email address is sent to Drip and a cookie is set by the service. Only administrator information is collected by Drip.


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. See the Gravatar service Privacy Policy. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.
