DuckDuckGo new privacy policy:

All you need to know about DuckDuckGo

DuckDuckGo web browser allows Microsoft trackers due to search agreement! As reported by Bleeping Computer, security researcher Zach Edwards posted on Twitter that “while DuckDuckGo blocks Google and Facebook trackers, it allowed Microsoft trackers to continue running.” The company explains that “this issue is occurring on browsers and only pertains to non-DuckDuckGo websites. Tests showed that the browser allowed trackers related to Bing and LinkedIn domains while blocking all other trackers. Edwards’ thread got the attention of DuckDuckGO CEO Gabriel Weinberg, which said the browser intentionally allows Microsoft trackers third-party sites due to a search syndication agreement with them. DuckDuckGo appears to have been transparent regarding the advertisement partnership with Microsoft but it is not clear why they did not disclose the allowing of Microsoft trackers until a security researcher discovered it
