Copernic launches Private Desktop Search

A couple of months ago the Dutch Search Engine Ixquick announced it wouldn't store ANY data of the user anymore. Privacy is a USP for Ixquick and therefore they keep on working on that area.

Last week Copernic, a search technology agency, announced it was launchin a special Privacy edition of their Desktop Search application together with Ixquick.

The special Privacy Edition of Copernic desktop search guarantees that you are the only one who can view personal data which is stored on your computer.

Copernics doesn't require registration or identification and it doesn't gather any statistics. To make this technically work Copernic turned to Ixquick.

The Copernic desktop search privacy edition is launched by ComputerBild magazine and made available on CD-ROM as a part of this week's ComputerBild issue 09/09. Over 800,000 copies are expected to be distributed.
