Privacy Policy

When you use Lightning Search, you trust us with your searches and we understand and value this trust. We have provided this Privacy Policy to explain how Lightning Search protects your privacy while searching, what information we collect through Lightning Search and some of your privacy rights regarding that information. Effective February 1, 2016 This Policy may change from time to time. Please check back frequently for updates.
1. Lightning Search does not track search history in any user identifiable way. The most popular search engines create search profiles of specific users in order to retarget ads based on those search queries as the user navigates the internet. Lightning Search does not track your search history in any user identifiable way.
2. Lightning Search does not retain server logs connected to personally identifiable information (PII). Lightning Search does not use tracking tool or maintain logs that compromise your privacy.
3. Lightning Search prevents your ISP from tracking your search terms. Some search engines do not encrypt your queries, which means your Internet Service Provider (ISP) can intercept and access them and connect them to your web and/or cable account. When you use Lightning Search , your search queries are encrypted so that your ISP cannot read them.
4. Lightning Search does not associate your searches from your online accounts. The most popular search engines offer other services which often collect sensitive personal information such as email (Gmail, Outlook Webmail) and social web services (Google+ and YouTube). When you search the web and remain logged into these accounts, your search queries can be easily connected to your profile. Lightning Search completely disconnects your searches from being tied to your email accounts and social profiles.
5. Lightning Search does not request, log or share your personal information. Lightning Search doesn't collect or maintain any personal information from users who use Lightning Search.
6. Lightning Search uses cookies to determine the effectiveness of our own marketing campaigns. Because we don’t track any personally identifiable information, we can’t do more than determine that a specific user searched for whatever search terms they searched for. We know nothing about that particular user and we don’t know anything identifiable about the user. Using cookies also allows us to encrypt your search queries on the browser to help hide the history of what you searched for on the machine.
7. More Information. If you wish to be notified of any updates to this Privacy Policy, please check back frequently as any updates will be posted to Lightning Search. with a new effective date.
