amazon shills. they use affiliate links and let amazon collect user data

DDG has its own ads and sponsored results, but those are clearly marked as such and that can be disabled in Settings.

They also take donations from people and companies.

>>899077

No, they use good ol' referral links.

Amazon and Ebay will know that you came through DuckDuckGo, but not what you were searching for.


 No.899103

ddg is google jr


 No.899122

Being affiliated with Amazon is fine by me. Canonical does it, and they're a privacy respecting company.

Analytics. User X from X city searched for X and then accessed site X at X o'clock. Same IP came back later and searched for Y then accessed site Y at Y o'clock. Now they have a bunch of data to sell to companies willing to know what a specific public from a given region is interested in consuming and then adjust their targeted marketing accordingly

>You can trust us goy! No need to worry, it's anonymized and based off of region, we would absolutely never sell personally identifiable data directly!
