Ixquick is a meta-search engine, based in the Netherlands, which combines multiple individual search engines into a weighted average, producing more relevant search results. Ixquick especially focuses on protecting the privacy of its users.
Ixquick web search ensures privacy by using several data minimization and encryption (hashing) techniques. Firstly, personal identifying information is not stored as a rule, which means the system does not store personal data. All other information is removed after 14 days. Secondly, the involved third parties receive only the data they minimally require, and the third parties are unable to identify the users of the Ixquick service.
