So the point was added to

"id": "g4RWiArs104",
"name": "No Tracking",
"category": "Anonymity",
"source": "http://donttrack.us/",
"service": "ddg",
"point": "good",
"score": "100",
"tldr": "DuckDuckGo doesn't save your searches and doesn't send your searches to other sites. No personal information is saved either. "

So Michiel and I have assigned to this point the top score 100 which means that this point matters a lot.
Since there are basically no other points raising concerns after having read DDG's privacy policy https://duckduckgo.com/privacy.html I decided to start the process to assign a class to the whole service. With "+100" on average, it gets a Class A. The website http://tos-dr.info has been updated accordingly.

Does anyone has other opinions, suggestions? Maybe we could add positive points for the great care they take documenting the changes in the privacy policy.

Saying that DDG doesn't save your searches is a little misleading, I feel. Their privacy policy[0] states that they *do* save individual searches, but in a non-identifiable way:

>We also save searches, but again, not in a personally identifiable way, as we do not store IP addresses or unique User agent strings. We use aggregate, non-personal search data to improve things like misspellings.

What do you suggest instead? I didn't think it was misleading obviously
when I wrote it. But if enough people feel that way, the summary can be

So I just looked this website up - and went to see if they have plugins for browsers. I use Opera personally and their required permissions state:

This extension will access your data on some websites.
This extension will access your tabs and browsing activity.


Sounds sussish. But I also am not savvy enough to actually look at how the plugin works to verify how intrusive or non-intrusive those catch all statements are.

- Duckduckgo has been caught using a tracking cookie.
- They save your data on Verizon servers, which shares data with NSA
- The founder got rich of selling private info through his former startup, the Names Database

Duckduckgo is a total joke when it comes to privacy. They don't deserve the A+ rating.
