Torry takes Privacy seriously.

Your privacy comes first.

We take your privacy very seriously, and this is the core of our mission at Torry. We never try to know who you are or what you are personally doing when using our search engine. In this privacy notice, we seek to explain to you in the clearest way possible what information we collect, how we use it, and what rights you have in relation to it. Please read this privacy notice carefully as it will help you understand what we do with the information that we collect.

How does Torry protect your Privacy?

Your searches are never sold or spied on.

When you search and browse with Torry, we don’t insert any cookies on your browser that may allow us or anyone else to recognize you or to follow you everywhere on the Internet. We don’t use any tracking devices.. We don’t collect and we don’t store any history or your searches. When you enter a search query, it is immediately anonymized. What you search for is your own business. With Torry, you gain access to the Tor network and great search results while your personal data remains private.

Why doesn’t Torry collect any personal data?

Your personal data is just that, personal.

It is our philosophy that your persona data is just that, personal. More importantly, if your personal data isn’t collected, it’s impossible to be hacked, demanded from governments, leaked, or abused.

Private Search, By Default

Privacy, Simplified.

When you browse and search with Torry, we don't know who you are and there is no way to tie your searches together. When you search, your query is automatically stripped of unnecessary metadata including your IP address and other identifying information. We send the anonymized search queries to our search partners to return the search results to you. We don’t log your searches.

To prevent abuse such as robotic high-volume querying, we anonymously determine the frequency of popular search keywords as a part of our anti-abuse measures, while protecting your privacy.

We don’t record your IP address. The only exception is for automated search requests (robots) that rapidly submit more queries to our servers than any normal human would. When our software detects potential abuse, we register and block the offending IP address in order to keep our service safe and free.

We don’t serve any tracking or identifying cookies. At Torry, no cookies are used by default. If you have changed any settings, then cookies are used to store those changes. However, in that case, they are not stored in a personally identifiable way. only uses cookies for preferences in order to remember the search preferences you choose. It’s completely anonymous and expires after not visiting for 90 days.

Transparent Business Model

How we keep the lights on.

It’s a myth that search engines need to profile you in order to generate revenue. Torry serves strictly non-personalized ads. Torry doesn't try to know you. With Torry, your search results and advertisements you see are determined exclusively by the keywords in your search query. You will receive neutral, balanced search results. Every search.

Torry earns money from clicks on the advertisements that appear above and beside the search results. The advertisements on Torry are clearly labeled as Ads and are text links to websites that pay for each click by users. The ads are delivered to you by our search partners, who pay Torry a share of the revenue generated via these ads.

Web Analytics

We don’t use external tracking tools.

We use a safe and fully encrypted web analysis service, which we ourselves operate, in order to analyze and continuously improve the use of our website. We measure overall traffic numbers and some other strictly anonymous statistics. These stats may include the number of times our service is accessed by a certain operating system, a type of browser, a language, etc., but we don’t know anything about individual users.

We never disclose or sell your contact information

We do not, and never will, share or sell any contact information we collect ourselves with any third party.

You ask for support, not spam. When you contact us via email or through our support center, we’ll use your contact information to respond to you. We won’t sell or share this information with anyone else. You will also have the option to subscribe to our newsletter, from which you can unsubscribe at any time.

How we respond to governmental requests for data

They can’t request what we don’t have.

They can’t request what we don’t have. We’ll only comply if we’re legally obliged to do so. But we’re not likely to receive requests by governments to hand over user data – simply because we don’t have any.
