At DuckDuckGo Search, we do not collect or share any personal information. That's our privacy policy in a nutshell. For example, we do not store IP addresses in our server logs, and we do not create unique cookie IDs. As such, we do not even have the ability to create search or browsing histories for any individual — it's privacy by design.

To protect you (our users) and ensure a bug-free search experience, we use a standardized computer security specification called a Content Security Policy or "CSP". Our CSP tells your browser which resources (e.g. JavaScript code, images, etc.) it should trust, fetch, and execute on DuckDuckGo.com, helping us detect and block malicious third-party attacks, like Cross-Site-Scripting (XSS) attacks, code injection attacks, clickjacking, and more.

When searching on DuckDuckGo, you may occasionally see an additional request made to https://duckduckgo.com/csp_report.js. This request sends us a report listing any potential CSP violations automatically, like when a legitimate resource fails to load, and helps us validate CSP updates we deploy.

In line with our strict privacy policy, CSP reports contain no personal information — in other words, they're completely anonymous.
