In order to eliminate the ability to extract the search term, we encrypt the search term, and it becomes unreadable in the browser’s history (Chrome and FireFox). For search enhanced search experience purposes, note that the search request to our search partner is sent with the original search term. If you accidentally kept your search session running, we limit other users’ access to your search activity, by setting a five-minute expiration time so any attempt to trace the search term is prevented. Lastly, user's search results page preferences are saved in local storage ensuring your own preferences are exposed only to you on your own machine/ device. Privado doesn’t have any access to this data.
To improve performance and optimize search experience, Privado stores aggregated search data. This data is used for statistical purposes, and does not include any identifiable IP or User Agent String data. Our use of the aggregated data is designed to help us deliver a powerful privacy product that is constantly improving.
