What personal data we collect and why we collect it

The Ozark Cave Diving Alliance does not collect or share any visitor information except for email addresses submitted for communication purposes.

Your contact information

 If you contact us through the website for any reason your information will not be shared with anyone but the intended party or individual for communication purposes.


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.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How long we retain your data

Email addresses are held by the intended party until such time as they are no longer needed for communication purposes. If you leave a blog comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
