StartPage offers you Map results from Google in complete privacy!

When you search for a location with StartPage by Ixquick, we get results from Google Maps and serve them to you anonymously. As always, your IP address is not recorded, your visit is not logged, and no tracking cookies are placed on your browser.

Our map interface allows you to zoom in and out, but because we never link your browser directly to Google, the JavaScript-based scroll and drag features are disabled to protect your privacy.
