It's Time to Ban Surveillance-Based Advertising
Dear Mojeek community,
Recently we teamed up with 13 other privacy-conscious businesses in order to call for a ban on surveillance advertising. On top of this we have published our response to the UK's Draft Online Safety Bill. It primarily addresses challenges in social media and as such does not recognise the big differences, that we have highlighted, in the search market.
We are also currently on the lookout for a Web Developer to join our small dynamic team. If you know anyone, a forward of this email would be much appreciated! Finally, we've introduced the Mojeek Tip of the Month; we hope that these short insights will help you get what you need out of the world's alternative search engine.
