Ixquick awarded European privacy seal


by Janet Harris

Ixquick, an international search engine owned by Surfboard Holding BV, has become the first company to be awarded an industry leading Privacy Policy.

The EU Data Protection Supervisor, Mr Peter Hustinx, presented the search engine with the European Privacy Seal, making it the first search engine to be formally approved by the EU.

Products and services with the seal are guaranteed to comply with EU laws and regulations on privacy and data security.

The award is issued by EuroPriSe, a consortium of nine privacy organisations which have the support of the European Commission.

Ixquick takes the privacy of Internet users seriously, and in 2006 it became the first search engine to delete IP-addresses and other user data within 48 hours and abolish the use of ID cookies.

The company does not share its users’ data with third parties, ensuring full privacy.
