 > Who we are

 Would it be possible to make this (and other section headings) headings or
 bold or something automatically? To make them stand out?

 > Our website address is: http://local.my/trunk3/src.

 Could we leave out the local.my address and just stop at the colon, or
 include a ___________ ?

 > If you are a registered user and upload images to the website, you
 should avoid uploading images with EXIF GPS location data included.
 Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from
 images on the website.

 I would make this a new sub section “Media” and move it below Comments

 > Contact forms

 I would move this below Comments

 > Comments

 I would move this up - this is the most likely default behavior that
 collects personal data for a WordPress site

 > You can also request that we delete

 I’d change “delete” to “erase” to be consistent with the UI + GDPR

 > This may be located abroad.

 I don’t think this helps. I recommend deleting it. Whatever service they
 use - we’ve already prompted them to add details here.
