Tks for the response. I am still in the dark. Perhaps I should rephrase my question. If I understood the concept of duckduckgo correctly, I am almost "invisible" as long as I use the Duck to visit any Wiki or newspaper website. However as soon as I use gmail, I become visible to Google (only) and they will bombard me with ads. If I use gmail and log off and get back to the Duck, I become "invisible" again???

The DDG Privacy page and the illustrated search privacy guides that have links on the privacy page do a great job of explaining all of this.
