I recommend you to use alternative search engines like [Searx.me] or [Duckduckgo] not because g is mining your data and then resells it to marketing agencies for targeted ads, but because if you say something restricted or will be “lucky” to be banned by their anti-spam bot you can lose access to your data forever.
