GOOD is a search engine operated by the company Good Search UG and is registered in Berlin. The charitable foundation Good Impact holds 100% of the company shares. So, as a foundation, the social start-up operates independently and without the intention of making a profit. It also has close ties to the other companies and initiatives of the Good Family, such as Good News.
Search results and ads are provided by BING. Other components (such as browser extensions or mobile apps) have been developed by us or in collaboration with partners – often on the basis of open-source applications.
Searching with GOOD is carbon-neutral. Three factors are important here: GOOD is hosted on a zero-carbon platform. Search queries are processed through BING. The company introduced an internal carbon tax in 2012 and has been carbon-neutral ever since. In many cases, the projects supported by GOOD have additional carbon-positive effects.
GOOD is a search engine that offers excellent data protection and helps you reduce your digital footprint. To do this:
- We do not create personal user profiles of you; many online services collect user data to sell on without the user’s explicit permission, whereas we do not collect your data or your search queries or sell these to advertisers.
- We encrypt your search queries, protecting them from potential eavesdroppers.
- Our mobile apps are equipped with ad blockers and anti-tracking features.
