Who we are
We are Wheeley Enterprises LLC
Our website address is: https://www.wheeleyenterprises.com.
When individuals leave comments on our website, we gather the information that they enter into the comment form. Additionally, we collect their IP address and browser user agent string to assist in detecting and preventing spam.
When adding images to our website, it’s a good practice to ensure that the images you upload don’t contain embedded location data, often referred to as EXIF GPS data. This is because visitors to our website have the ability to download these images, and they can potentially extract and access the location information stored within them.
To safeguard our users’ privacy and protect sensitive location details, please take the extra step to remove or strip EXIF GPS data from your images before uploading them to our website. This simple precaution can help maintain the anonymity of your image content and prevent unintended exposure of location information to your website’s audience.

Embedded content from other websites
Our website sometimes features embedded content like videos, images, and articles from external sources. It’s important to note that this embedded content functions similarly to visiting the original external website.
When you interact with embedded content, the external websites may gather information about you, utilize cookies, incorporate additional third-party tracking mechanisms, and observe your engagement with the embedded content. This tracking can occur whether you have an account on the external website and are logged in or not.
In essence, the embedded content operates as if you were directly visiting the external website, and it’s subject to the privacy practices and data collection methods of those external sources. It’s essential to be aware of this when engaging with embedded content on our site.
