DuckDuckGo General Information

Description

Operator of an internet search engine intended to protect the user's privacy. The company's engine emphasizes protecting searchers' privacy and avoiding the filter bubble of personalized search results, showing all users the same search results for a given search term and providing the best results, rather than the most result, thereby enabling users to maintain their confidentiality and also take control of their personal information online while searching the internet.
