Encryption prevents snooping and Ixquick uses encryption (HTTPS) by default. Your searches are encrypted, so others can’t “tap” the Internet connection to snoop what you’re searching for. This combination of not storing data and using strong encryption for the connections is key in protecting your privacy. In that Ixquick is based in the Netherlands, U.S. jurisdiction does not apply to Ixquick, at least not directly. Ixquick will never cooperate with voluntary spying programs like PRISM. And at the end of the day, Ixquick doesn’t have any data to give. Once again, I would advise you not to be involved with Google, Yahoo or Facebook, to list an obvious three. I will complete this Internet privacy series in part four.
