Startpage was recently acquired by an adtech company.
Please consider removing it from your list of google search alternatives.

There haven't been any changes in their privacy policy. The fact that their majority stakeholder changed doesn't mean that Startpage is suddenly not a privacy search engine anymore. It is reasonable to have concerns, but they have addressed those here in my opinion.

@pydo @ThijsRay You both make good points. I'll update the guide with a reference to this issue.
