IP Addresses
The IP address that is associated with your search will NOT be recorded. The only exception is for “abusive” (automated) queriers that rapidly submit many queries to Ixquick in a very short time.

Data Collection
Ixquick collects limited information each time you visit our site, so we can improve the overall quality of your online experience. We only collect browser and platform type and register the date and time you visited the Ixquick.com site. Like most standard Web site servers, we use log files to collect and store this anonymous user information.

Cookies
Cookies are small pieces of data that are sent and saved to your computer's hard drive when visiting sites. Ixquick uses only one anonymous cookie called "preferences". This cookie is to remember the search preferences you saved for your next visit. It expires after 90 days. You can choose to accept or refuse cookies by changing the settings of your browser.

You can periodically delete cookies from your computer's hard drive, clearing out all historical data that may have been saved from your previous web surfing. If you delete cookies, you will not be recognized as a repeat visitor or viewer when returning to a site. To promote a cookie-free internet, Ixquick has recently launched a URL generator which eradicates the need for setting a cookie. It remembers your settings in a privacy friendly manner.

www.startpage.com...

It is a search engine that respects your privacy and doesn't collect any information or personalize results.

I have given up and gone back to google. but i appreciate the ideas. I just wonder if those leave out too many searches?

Cool thread!!

I like trying new search engines. It is amazing what you find on some that are not on others.

I use to use webcrawler before I ever heard of Google.

Webcrawler
I haven't used it in a while though and it looks very different compared to when I use to use it.

It was the only search engine I knew at the time.

I will be book marking these search engines!

Gibiru.com respects privacy issues and I've seen it listed and have used it as well Startpage or its sister Starting page. they both respect privacy concerns as well.

Scroogle
Startpage

These are the two I prefer on a daily basis.
After learning what ad-tracking was about 6 years ago, I've never looked back.

Don't need an algorithm telling me what is good for me to look at.
Of course, there's tracking everywhere...
But at least you can try to clean a slate once in a while.
