What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Like most website operators, TweenSpeechTherapy.com collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. TweenSpeechTherapy.com’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use this website. TweenSpeechTherapy.com also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for the purpose of identifying and blocking hacking attempts on the website.
We use a plugin called WP Smush. Smush sends images to the WPMU DEV servers to optimize them for web use. This includes the transfer of EXIF data. The EXIF data will either be stripped or returned as it is. It is not stored on the WPMU DEV servers.

The amount and type of information that TweenSpeechTherapy.com gathers depends on the nature of the interaction.
