Where is the EXIF data?

I noticed that all EXIF data was cleared after I uploaded the photo. How to keep the EXIF data or I missed something?
this is one of the features of the service. exif data is removed because the images are shared publicly and the developer does not want hidden information to leak accidentally by users who might have no idea what exif information is stored in the photos. i do not think there is any setting available on imgur platform that retains the data if you so desire. 
ahem. this is marked as completed. have you turned on exif storage? have you made it optional? a comment would have been useful! 
I marked it completed because you answered it :) Everything you said was correct.
The suggestion he's asking about is an option to keep that metadata. Some people know what it is AND want to keep it. If location is able to be stripped out separately that would be useful too. A checkbox to keep metadata would get me to pay for pro. I'm sure it would be enough for others, too.
