> 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.

> Startpage (www.startpage.com) by Ixquick is a search engine that is
> uniquely positioned to be that alternative. Fully focused on privacy
> since 2006, Startpage (known as Ixquick.com in Europe) is the only major
> search engine that does not retain your personal data.
>
> Startpage's privacy policy is widely considered the best in the
> industry:

> - No identifying cookies.
> - No collecting of personal data.
> - No sharing of personal data with third parties.
> - Offering secure, encrypted connections (HTTPS/SSL)
> - And a full proxy service to be launched next month.
>
> This information could be a useful resource to your audience in these
> important discussions.
> Please contact me if you would like additional information, or to
> arrange a phone or radio interview.
