Media Services and Plugins
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 this service sets up a cookie. Drip collects only administrator information.
If you upload images to our website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Our website is hosted in the European Union (EU). Data that is transferred to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA) is protected by the data protection laws established by the European Commission. You can learn more about the European Commission’s data protection rules here.
By using our site, you acknowledge that personal data that you submit for publication to our website may be available internationally via the internet. We are not liable for any use or misuse of such data by others.
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.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. 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.
