not mistaken at all - need g+ account to learn more or contact them - not going to happen. Page says nothing at all about privacy

also, Duckduckgo does not have any privacy tools and they do not have a private VPN service - they are a search engine and do not track your search activity and that's it

if you read the forum sticky posts you will see that duckduckgo is not interested in other projects except improving seaches and instant answers

How about this, let me modify JSmith's post, why don't Duckduckgo offer their help and convince the Head to allow Duckduckgo to integrate privacy features and to not to use some of Google' services such as their search, and instead use Duckduckgo's.
