Should I try to move our website, now that we own our new name (dcpnsupport.org), to a different service? It is a question I frequently ponder. For now, its membership service is just too attractive and its edit tools too easy to use. I try to keep the site content backed up, but it's time consuming.
I don't know much about the privacy of what is posted or used with private emails (email messages sent directly from one member to another, without revealing the email address of either) on the membership features of this site. A February support message from WEBS confirmed that there is no PERMANENT way to delete private email messages, though they are still visible only to the particular members involved. There may be security reasons for this. As far as I can tell, everything else a member posts can be deleted.
However: Our site privacy link (seen when a member goes to the Sign-In page) takes the user to the Google privacy page. That suggests to me that the data on this site might be part of Google's normal operational model - suck up and mash up as much data as possible to further customize its advertisements.
Of course, there are no ads on our site, but the Googles of the world still like to know what we are doing so they can sell stuff.
