We believe privacy is a fundamental human right.

Protecting your privacy is all about having control over your data. At elliotsearchengine.org, we will be transparent with your, we will help you to control and protect what’s yours:
It’s Your Data. Not Big Data! !
Why we don’t collect any "personal data"
It’s the best way to safeguard your privacy.
If information not shared, it cannot be collected, as it can’t be stolen, demanded, leaked or abused.
How do we define "personal data?"
To maximize your privacy, we will be more transparent with you.
The only exception is for automated search requests (BOTs) that rapidly send undesirable search queries to our websites for the purpose of flooding the server or deliberate sabotage, sometimes we monitor something unusual than any normal human would. When our software detects potential abuse, we can put in place a protection mechanism to register and block the offending IP address in order to keep our service safe and free.
Information we don’t collect
So let’s be perfectly clear:
Because our Firewall will register IP address in the case that a unusual user tries to access our systems or infiltrate our servers using fraudulent methods, which the firewall may detect it as an attack attempt.
We don’t serve any bad tracking or identifying cookies
This is about "good" and "bad" cookies, Cookies are small pieces of data that are sent to you by websites you visit. as "Bad" cookies have unique elements that can track all kinds of personal information, We don’t serve any of those, elliotsearchengine.org uses just one "good" cookie for "performance" and "analytics" in order to optimize our service and save your preferences you choose. It’s completely anonymous, we don't collect a sensitive or personal information and expires after not visiting elliotsearchengine.org for 60 days, as now you can blocks many of these trackers from your browser or by using addons.
We don't know who you are! We don't care
We don't store your search queries
that will Saves us money and more hard drive.
To prevent abuse such as high-volume BOT querying, we may anonymously monitor the frequency of search queries as a part of our prevention measures, while protecting your privacy, as we may block some search queries through our search box to protect kids online from going to malicious content.
How we have implemented truly anonymous analytics
We only count aggregate numbers and statistics
We do measure overall traffic numbers and some other – strictly anonymous – statistics. These stats may include the number of times our service is accessed by a certain device, operating system, a type of browser, a specific language, countries, etc., but we don’t know anything about individual users or who they are in person.
How we keep elliotsearchengine.org free without using "personal data"
Paid ads may appear in search results that match your search as SEM/SERP
We offer you the search service, and at the same time you may show you commercial offers or paid ads that appear to you according to the keywords that were allocated by the advertiser or the geographical region in general, these ads are not intrusive, and we do not use personal data or profiling.
Our search result pages may include a small number of clearly labeled "sponsored links," which generate revenue and cover our operational costs. Those links are retrieved from platforms such as Google AdSense. In order to enable the prevention of click fraud, some non-identifying system information is shared, but because we never share personal information or information that could uniquely identify you, the ads we display are not connected to any individual user.
It’s a myth that search engines need to profile you in order to earn decent money. elliotsearchengine.org serves strictly non-personalized ads. Sure, our ads make only a fraction of what other search engine ads make, but they pay all our bills.
We protect you on our site – and beyond
Once you click search button, there is 2 scenarios, as first, First, you will remain in our website, secondly you may be teleported to another website, once you send your search or click on a search result, where you will leave our site and our privacy protection. This is true for sponsored links, search results and other external links, third-party service for example booking flight ticket on airline website or another booking system, same for hotels, guided tours. as you can use incognito mode feature from most web browsers, that will insure private browsing does not save your browsing information, leaving no trace after you end the session.
Data Encryption and Security
We use Let's Encrypt SSL ( SHA-256 With RSA Encryption )
elliot! Search strives to protect your personal information. For security of transactions, we use the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol, which encrypts any personal information you enter into registration forms on the Application. The encryption process protects your information, by scrambling it before it is sent to us from your computer. We also make commercially reasonable effort to ensure the security of your personal information on our system.
Encryption makes it difficult for unauthorized people to view informations traveling between computers, it is therefore unlikely that anyone read encrypted data as it traveled across the network.
