Metadata (the information about a document which is stored within said document) may compromise privacy. Photos, videos, SMS messages, RSS feeds and webpages are among the types of documents, images and files which may contain metadata.

The Administrator is not responsible for the removal of metadata from posted content. To prevent public disclosure of potentially confidential information, users are advised to remove sensitive metadata from all files, images and documents before submission.
