On your website, Smush does not communicate with end users. The only input option Smush has is to subscribe to a newsletter for site administrators only.
To send informative emails (Opt-in) to the site administrator, Smush uses a third party email service (Mailchimp). The email address of the administrator is sent to Mailchimp, and the service sets a cookie. Only administrator data is collected via Mailchimp.
To optimize them for web use, Smush sends pictures to the WPMU DEV servers. This means moving data from the EXIF. It will either strip the EXIF data or return it as it is. It is not stored on the DEV servers of WPMU.
