Last update: 25/10/2016

What you are doing with Qwant is your business and yours only. To protect your privacy, Qwant makes every effort to ensure the security and confidentiality of its users personal data. We collect as little data as possible. Therefore, we forbid ourselves to use any cookie or any other tracking device that may help build your profile for advertising purposes. Moreover, your queries are  anonymized by dissociating them and the IP address you used, in accordance with recommandations by the French data protection office, CNIL.

When we do need to memorize information, Qwant uses the “local storage” on your device. It allows to make your user experience smoother by enabling you to save your preferences (langages, activation ou deactivation of news trends, filtering of adult content, favicon display…).

If you have questions regarding the way we handle your data, please read our privacy policy.
