Use alternative tools to retain control

People who care about their privacy should stay away from popular consumer Internet services.

Our personal information is highly valued, and online services are making millions by gathering and sharing our search history, buying habits and marriage status with advertisers and marketers. You can retain control over your data by using alternative or stand-alone tools installed on your own server.

DuckDuckGo - The search engine that doesn't track you.

DuckDuckGo promises a safer search engine for those privacy-minded web users that dislike the idea of advertisers having access to their personal information. While there are no guarantees when it comes to online services, DuckDuckGo has certainly made strides to educate their users in how to keep their online presence private from prying eyes by providing resources that teach you how to opt-out of privacy-violating tracking.
