This meticulous collection process serves a dual purpose: enhancing our spam detection mechanisms and elevating the overall quality of interactions within our vibrant community.
Moreover, to make your experience even more personalized, we use an anonymized string generated from your email address (known as a hash). This string may be shared with the Gravatar service to verify if you use it. Should your comment be approved, your profile picture, if attached, will be visible to the public, adding a personal touch to your contribution.
When you choose to upload images to friendsforweightloss.com, we kindly ask that you ensure these images do not contain embedded location data (EXIF GPS). This measure is in place to protect your privacy, as visitors to our site might otherwise extract location data from such images.
