This privacy policy by Mojeek Limited, explains our stance on personal information, in regard to cookies, tracking, logging, data usage, contact information and any links to third parties.

Mojeek follows a strict no tracking privacy policy, and it's quite simple, we don't track our users. In fact, Mojeek was the first ever no tracking/privacy orientated search engine, as can be seen on and our original privacy policy from when Mojeek was just a side project.

Cookie Policy

By default and unless specifically agreed to, Mojeek doesn't place any cookies on your computer. If Mojeek does require to place a cookie your agreement will be requested, when setting personal preferences for example. Also at any time, visiting this page will list what cookies Mojeek has on your computer, their contents, and an explanation of their values. From that page you can also instruct Mojeek to delete any cookie we have placed.

Tracking and Logging Policy

Mojeek doesn't implement any kind of specific user tracking, whether that be at the time of visit or subsequently via standard logs, which Mojeek does keep. These logs contain the time of visit, page requested, possibly referral data, and browser information. IP addresses are not recorded (except in rare circumstances[1]) , instead the IP address is replaced with a simple two letter code indicating the visitors country of origin. By doing this, Mojeek removes any possibility of tracking or identifying any particular user.

[1] Mojeek does make one exception to this rule, if a search query is deemed related to illegal and unethical practices relating to minors, then the full log including visiting IP address will be kept and gladly handed over to any official authorities that ask. If you're at all concerned about this exception then Mojeek is not the search engine for you.

This paragraph was only in our privacy policy as a deterrent and was never acted upon. In fact it was not even possible because of the way our system is built to anonymize users. We do, however, try to leave websites that contain illegal/unethical practices relating to minors out of our index.

Data Usage

The remaining log data (country, time/date, page requested, referral data, and browser), which although now contains no identifiable data, would still in no situation whatsoever be sold or distributed to any third party vendors. This data is kept private for the sole purpose of storing historical traffic volumes and country demographics of our visitors. We may also use aggregate, non-personal search data to improve our results.

Contact Page Information

We only use your name and email address for the purpose of responding to contact requests that you have made. We do not use these details for any other purpose. Furthermore, under GDPR, we respect that if you request and no longer give consent to us possessing your name and email address for contact reason, we will delete this data.

Other Websites

The Mojeek website contains links to other websites. This privacy policy only applies to this website. When you proceed to other websites via our links, our privacy policy is void.

Third Parties

We do not outsource any development of Mojeek to third parties; all development is kept in-house. We pride ourselves on limiting the number of third party products and services that Mojeek consumes. A complete list of third parties is shown below:

  • Amazon - We use Amazon to show shopping results to you.

Links to these third parties may include an affiliate code which enables Mojeek to earn a small commission. No information is shared by Mojeek to any third party, and Mojeek does not track or store any data on followed links to third parties e.g. we do not record clicks on Shopping Results that are provided by Amazon.

We are no longer showing Shopping results from Amazon partially based on feedback from users.

If you have any further questions please contact us, we'll be happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
