Yippy, formerly known as Clusty, is a search engine that doesn’t track you or store any information on you. Yippy doesn’t store a history of your searches on their servers or in your Web browser, track your activity on the Yippy website or store any personal information that you don’t offer to it. Yippy doesn’t sell users’ personal information for profit to advertisers.
Yippy, in competition with Google, also offers its own suite of cloud programs to compete with Google’s Gmail, Google Docs, Google Calendar and other services. Yippy offers free Web-based email, document management, storage and calendar applications. Yippy promises the same stringent privacy protection for your personal data.
Yippy searches your query in a variety of places, such as on Bing and Wikipedia, and prevents the most relevant results on the same page. Searches Yippy makes for you on other search engines can’t be tied to you personally, only tied to Yippy’s servers. Unfortunately, the Yippy search engine doesn't include support for SSL encryption. People between your computer and YIppy's servers, such as on an open Wi-Fi network, could snoop on your searches.
