Duckduckgo.com – Search engine – Privacy Tactic
Search engines today record your IP address, along with all your search data. They store this data forever, and sell it to advertisers. If the police, tax authorities or benefit agencies are interested in your data, they sell it – Gmail allegedly charges $25 for each email account.
