In order to remember your settings, we need to store them somewhere. Because we do not store any information about you on our server, we instead need store your settings on your own device using harmless little text files called cookies.
It is important to note that we do not store any information about your searches either in the cookies on your machine or on our servers. The cookies we store do not affect your privacy or your search anonymity in any way.
Here is a list of the cookies we store and their function...
|userprefs1||User Preferences: We send some of your user settings to our server in order to allow us to optimize and filter your search results and improve your overall site experience. None of this information is stored on our servers after the cookies have expired or have been deleted. None of the information in this cookie compromises your privacy: it does not contain your search terms or any personally identifiable information, beyond the country code you selected when performing your search.|
|vpw||Viewport Width: In order to optimize layout for pages which are proxied and served via an iframe, we send your browser's viewport pixel width to our server and discard it immediately after serving the proxied content.|
