What personal data we collect and why we collect it


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.

Your profile data

The data you submit as part of your profile is publicly viewable and you may edit it at any time via the code you’re given upon signup. Website administrators can see and edit this information. If you have an account on this site, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us.

We retain data when profiles are removed from the site unless you contact us to request that we purge it.


Accessibility is important to us. We have deliberately kept this site styled simply and clearly with the goal of meeting as many accessibility needs as possible, but no one’s perfect. If an element of the site is not accessible for you or you have suggestions and recommendations, please get in touch.
