Compiler Privacy

The QB64 Compiler and programs created with it make connections to QB64 servers under the following circumstances:

  • When updating help pages due to selecting the Help ⮕ Update Current Page or Help ⮕ Update All Pages, content is downloaded from https://wiki.qb64.org;
  • When checking for QB64 updates due to selecting the Help ⮕ Check For Newer Version, content is downloaded from https://qb64.org;
  • Programs that use the _CONNECTIONADDRESS$ function to determine their public IP address;

In these circumstances, the request carries no personal information beyond your public IP address, which is logged as part of regular website traffic. If this is unacceptable, please avoid using the built-in help updater, version updater, or the _CONNECTIONADDRESS$ function.

Any other system information collected by the QB64 compiler is kept locally on the computer and can be removed by deleting the QB64 directory.

When visitors leave comments on QB64 sites we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

In addition on some of our sites the page viewed, email address, and user name are logged. This is done to help protect the sites from spam.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our websites, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time. Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on our sites, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes. We also will not remove content submitted to our sites unless it is legally required.
