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.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
Any media uploaded to QB64 sites, are the property of the QB64 Project.
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.
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.
