Privacy policy

Your privacy is of the utmost importance and every single step is taken to protect it. While on our website, no requests to other websites or domains will be made. We do not use analytics suites, social buttons, external CDNs or any other service that collects user data.

An exception to our no external requests rule are embedded video links, which is why that setting is disabled by default. Refer to the Youtube section of the privacy policy for more.

Information we collect

No personally identifiable information such your IP address, your browser's user agent or unique IDs are stored or logged on our servers. Search queries―without any other information attached―are temporarily stored for caching, statistics and service improvement purposes. We do not store your search history.

Website previews

Previews are generated on our servers and sent to your browser as a rendered image. Your browser never visits a website unless you decide to do so by clicking on its link. As long as you stay on Peekier, no information is transmitted to other domains.

Cookies / local storage

Peekier does not use cookies in any way to track you or store personally identifiable data. We employ HTML5 local storage to store your settings such as layout, region or safe search without any unique IDs. Cloudflare, our caching provider, may use a single session cookie for anti-DDOS measures.

Search query leakage

Peekier stores the search query in the hash (the part after the #) of the URL. That information is not transmitted by the browser over the wire. Any websites that you visit on Peekier can only know that you clicked on a link by use of the HTTP Referrer header but cannot know what you were searching for.

HTTPS

SSL/TLS is enforced throughout the website. No unencrypted information is transmitted over the internet. Search result links that support HTTPS are designated by the blue padlock. Non-HTTPS links that support encryption are automatically converted.

YouTube

YouTube video links can be directly opened right on the Peekier website, however that option is disabled by default. The reason is that YouTube uses tracking and advertising unique IDs via cookies thus making it incompatible with our privacy policy. If you trust YouTube enough you can select that option. All YouTube videos are embedded over HTTPS.
