For Privacy's Sake, Switch to Startpage PDF Print E-mail

Dear Colleague:

Recent privacy discussions about Microsoft and Google have re-ignited the important debate about search engine privacy. In a CNBC interview aired last week, the issue was made clear:

"If you have something that you don't want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn't be doing it in the first place. If you really need that kind of privacy, the reality is that search engines -- including Google -- do retain this information for some time and it's important, for example, that we are all subject in the United States to the Patriot Act and it is possible that all that information could be made available to the authorities."

Even a Mozilla executive is now recommending on his blog that people look at alternative search engines for privacy reasons.
