Privacy Policy

External Links

After clicking on a search result, you leave the protection offered by Mysites123, unless you use our unique proxy function to protect your identity. Please note that this privacy policy applies only to the Mysites123 website. Mysites123 is a search engine, and an advertising publisher, so you will find various links on our site, including but not limited to search results and sponsored results. These sites are owned and maintained by independent companies, over which Mysites123 has no control, and who are not covered by this privacy policy. Mysites123 is not liable or responsible for the content of these sites, or their collection and use of information.

Mysites123 prevents the leakage of your search terms to third parties by using the so called POST method by default instead of the GET method, which is used by many other search providers. The POST method keeps your search terms out of the logs of webmasters of sites that you reach from our results. Search terms tell a lot about what you are thinking, which is why this is a privacy issue. With the POST method Mysites123 uses, your search terms are stripped off. This can cause "Web page has expired" messages and prevents from creating shortcuts of results-pages but is preferred from a privacy perspective. To create shortcuts you can use the "Bookmark this search" button on the right of the results page. Alternatively you can switch off "Use POST vs. GET" completely in ‘SETTINGS’.

Mysites123 also offers a proxy function that allows the users to see the information on external sites without disclosing their IP address to these sites. Further information on this great privacy tool can be found here.

To fully protect our users from the privacy risks of the Facebook and Twitter social media plugins, we have implemented a two-step approach to show these icons on our site.

Information Sharing

Mysites123 does not share personal information with any third party, including its provider(s) of regular or sponsored search results.

When you perform a search on Mysites123, the search phrase must be sent to the provider(s) of the search results, so that they can be generated and presented to you on the Mysites123 website.

Some results pages on Mysites123 include a small number of clearly labeled sponsored links to generate revenue and cover operational costs. Those links are retrieved from platforms such as Google Adwords. Because we don’t profile you, the ads are not individually tailored to users. In order to enable the prevention of click fraud, some non-identifying system information is transmitted to the sponsored results provider(s). We never share your IP address or other data that would uniquely identify you.

No tracking cookies are used, so there is no cookie information to be shared.

Governmental Requests

Mysites123 is headquartered in The Netherlands, Europe. Because we don't store any personal information to begin with, Mysites123 is unlikely to receive any requests by governments to hand over data about our users. In the seventeen years we've been in business, we have never received any such request.

If we ever do receive a request from Dutch judicial authorities to hand over certain information, we will have our lawyers check the validity of the request and determine whether we are obliged to comply. We will not comply with such requests unless we are convinced that the request is legally valid and we believe that it is undeniably our legal obligation to comply.

We will not comply with requests from any authorities other than Dutch authorities. If we receive a request from any foreign government, we will refuse to comply and will instead instruct the requestor to place a formal request to the Dutch authorities for mutual assistance.

Mysites123 will never cooperate with any voluntary surveillance programs. Under the strong laws that protect the right to privacy in Europe, European governments cannot legally force service providers like Mysites123 to implement a blanket-spying program on their users.
