If you upload images to the 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.
Like many site operators, we collect information that your browser sends whenever you visit our site. This data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser version, the pages of our site that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages and other statistics. In addition, we may use third party services such as Google Analytics that collect, monitor, and analyze this data so we can develop our site and offer relevant products and services to current and potential partners and/or customers. Third party service vendors (credit card companies, financial institutions, mail services or database managers) may also capture your information. We do not control how these third parties use such information, but we do ask them to disclose how they use personal information provided to them from visitors and authorized customers. Some of these third parties may be intermediaries that act solely as links in the distribution chain, and do not store, retain, or use the information given to them.
Communications from site data and Contact forms
We may use your Personal Information to contact you with emails, newsletters, marketing or promotional materials, and other information that allows us to connect with you further. Likewise, third party vendors may use your information in correlation with our offerings to secure payments and to manage contact lists, etc. Know that you can always remove yourself from newsletter and/or email lists by contacting us and providing the email address you would like to remove.

However, if you do not accept cookies and/or choose to use the Do Not Track (“DNT”) feature of your browser, you may not be able to use some portions of our site. If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for up to fourteen months.

Embedded content from other websites
3rd party cookies (Google Analytics, etc.) are retained for up to fourteen months and allow us to monitor the success of our website and our advertising efforts and to provide content tailored for a given user on this and other web-based systems. 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, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. Users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they may not be able to change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
