Well it is MONDAY again and so the MADDness begins
Dear Privacy-Minded Internet User:
The European Parliament wants to take away the right to search the Internet in privacy.
As you know, the Startpage and Ixquick search engines have helped millions of people protect their privacy through anonymous, certified proxy searching. Human rights activists, whistleblowers, and regular people all appreciate the security of knowing we never record users’ IP addresses and we don’t use tracking cookies.
But unless we act now, Europeans may lose that right.
A directive known as “Written Declaration 29,” adopted last week by the European Parliament, calls for legislation that would require search engines to make a record of all search queries.
Spying on people’s searches without evidence of a crime would throw us back to the East German Stasi era where everyone was under surveillance. We believe privacy is a fundamental right, and we have vowed to resist this move.
Please read and distribute the press release. We need your help to spread the word.
