We take in images only in e-mails or by downloading from Web sites. If you supply images, 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.
We have none in our blog. We do have a link on most pages where people can send feedback or questions by e-mail.
We do not have accounts except for the owner and technical writer on the site.
