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.
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.
