Am I tracked when using Qwant Causes?

Qwant always respects your privacy and therefore does not collect your personal data when you activate Qwant Causes. Our Privacy Policy still applies. When Qwant Causes is activated and when you click ads, we don’t record which ads you have clicked on. Only the number of clicks is recorded; it is the “QOZ” number displayed on your user interface. This QOZ number is stored within the local storage of your Web browser. It is associated with your account if you are logged in with a Qwant Account, so that you can increment the count from various devices if you want to. If you erase your local storage from one device, the counter on this device will start back at zero, but your previously generated QOZes will still be donated.


Why is my Qwant QOZ count back to zero?

To respect your privacy, Qwant does not retrieve the number of QOZ you personally generate when using Qwant Causes, unless you are logged in with a Qwant Account. The number of QOZ you generate is stored locally on your device. The number can go back to zero if the local storage of your Web browser is erased. Don’t worry though, Qwant donates each QOZ that is generated, even when we don’t know who generated them.
