What personal data we collect and why we collect it?
We do not collect private personal data and rely on European regulations, relating to data protection, which we follow and respect, in any instance, and will put them into practice for all users around the world, even though we are not based in Europe.
By default, the CMS we use does not collect any personal data about visitors, and only collects the data shown on the User Profile screen from registered users.
We use third-party advertising companies (such as Google Adsense service) who serve ads to help keep content free and help us pay just the costs of keeping this information site alive.
For these software service partners, we place additional restrictions on how your data can be used to prevent misuse. For example, we do not allow these partners to take your information for profiling and ad personalisation on other sites.

This site utilizes caching in order to facilitate a faster response time and better user experience. Caching potentially stores a duplicate copy of every web page that is on display on this site. All cache files are temporary and are never accessed by any third party, except as necessary to obtain technical support from the cache plugin vendor. Cache files expire on a schedule set by the site administrator, but may easily be purged by the admin before their natural expiration, if necessary. We may use QUIC.cloud services to process & cache your data temporarily. Please see https://quic.cloud/privacy-policy/ for more details.
Smush 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.
Smush 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.
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.

All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
