Now if only more Internet companies were like the search engine, “DuckDuckGo“:

Their Privacy Policy is simple:

We don’t collect or share personal information.
That’s our privacy policy in a nutshell.

Nice. Simple.

I do like the completeness of Google, however as the majority of Google’s revenue ( close to $16 Billion in Q2 2014!) is generated via ads, they collect and compile a TON of information on your search/browsing/email habits in order to sell very targeted adspace to their customers.

Maybe I don’t want to be a packaged product. Or maybe I don’t care. Or maybe I like the eerily spot-on ads that show up in my browser. In any case I like choice so there are times I will choose to DuckDuckGo. Plus, the name is cool.

Finally? DuckDuckGo likes me more than Google. A search for “Hooded Hawk” on DuckDuckGo results in my site being the first hit! On Google, is on the third page of results. With all that Google tracks from me, they should at least know my own website! Phhhhht.
