[SOLVED]FreeCAD information collection

Post by Mintuser998 » Mon Jun 18, 2018 12:58 am

Does anyone know if FreeCAD collects any information? I can't find a privacy policy or user agreement for the application.

I don't know, but it seems unlikely. In general, that would be totally against the open source philosophy. Also, according to their github page, there have been 13,973 commits by 156 contributors. It seems likely that some of those developers are looking over other people's code now and then, and it would be quite difficult to put any kind of spyware/tracking/etc. in it without the knowledge of the other developers.
