Where on the caliper is the leak coming from?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
It seems to be the caliper itself its hard to tell but I think its from the pistons
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
But it only seems to leak when its parked
Expert:  Ron replied 1 month ago.

If in fact its leaking from the piston then your going to need to replace the caliper assembly. I would remove it from the hanger and have a closer look to be sure its not the break line. Do you need the removal steps?

Why does it only leak when its parked
Expert:  Ron replied 1 month ago.

Im not sure it only leaks when its parked and there is not way to know its not leaking when your rolling but it should not leak at any time. If it is the caliper piston then you need to replace the assembly.
