More Privacy Information About UsWe've had many people ask us questions about the technical aspects of how we manage user privacy. This post answers these questions.
Do you open source any of your code? Where can we find it?Yes, all of our code is open source! It can all be found at https://gitlab.com/infinitysearch/infinity-search.
We are also working on other search services that include a web crawler, indexer, and our desktop version of Infinity Search that will also be open source. These are still in the early stages of development, however, and they will be released sometime in the future.
What customer data is collected, how often, and in what level of identification?Since we are using the Microsoft's Cognitive Services API, the searches that have been made on our behalf are saved by Microsoft. It just appears to Microsoft as us making the searches, however. We are also considering integrating our results from other services such as Mojeek, DuckDuckGo, and our custom API in the future. We will maintain the same process described above for any future integrations.
To measure site usage, we use Fathom Analytics. They do not track or store our visitors’ personal information and give us site metrics by taking anonymous data. This article published by them describes how they manage this: https://usefathom.com/news/anonymization. Their demo page displays what a site owner can see about their users: https://app.usefathom.com/share/lsqyv/pjrvs.
