Frequently asked questions
What is this?
This is a metasearch engine that gets results from other engines, and strips away all of the tracking parameters and Microsoft/globohomo bullshit they add. Most of the other alternatives to Google jack themselves off about being ""privacy respecting"" or whatever the fuck but it always turns out to be a total lie, and I just got fed up with their shit honestly. Alternatives like Searx or YaCy all fucking sucks so I made my own thing.
Do you keep logs?
I store data temporarly to get the next page of results. This might include search queries, tokens and other parameters. These parameters are encrypted using
on the serber, for which I give you a key (also known internally as
token). When you make a request to get the next page, you supply the token, the data is decrypted and the request is fulfilled. This encrypted data is deleted after 15 minutes, or after it's used, whichever comes first.
log IP addresses, user agents, or anything else. The
tokens are the only thing that are stored (in RAM, mind you), temporarly, encrypted.
Do you share information with third parties?
Your search queries and supplied filters are shared with the scraper you chose (so I can get the search results, duh). I don't share anything else (that means I don't share your IP address, location, or anything of this kind). There is no way that site can know you're the one searching for something, unless you send out a search query that de-anonymises you.
TL;DR assume those websites can see what you search for, but can't see who you are (unless you're really dumb).
Where is this website hosted?
This website is hosted on a Contabo shitbox in the United States.

How can I trust you?
You just sort of have to take my word for it right now. If you'd rather trust yourself instead of me (I believe in you!!), all of the code on this website is available trough my git page
for you to host on your own machines. Just a reminder: if you're the sole user of your instance, it doesn't take immense brain power for Microshit to figure out you basically just switched IP addresses. Invite your friends to use your instance!
