Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy for Simul-Search + / Simul-Search


This privacy policy governs your use of the software application Simul-Search +/ Simul-Search (“Application”) for iOS / macOS devices that was created by Hanley Solid Solutions. The Application is a mobile application that forwards user searched terms to four search service providers of their choosing at the same time.

What information does the Application obtain and how is it used?

User Provided Information

The Application obtains the information you provide when you provide search terms. No user identifiable information is otherwise providable to the Application.

Automatically Collected Information

The Application automatically collects historical search term data for easy re-visiting of a past search. However this is not stored indefinitely, and is user removable.

Does the Application collect precise real time location information of the device?

This Application does not collect and store location data. However, if enabled, it will pass the location data on to the search service providers when and if they request it from you. The usage of location data by the providers is outlined in their respective privacy policies.

Do third parties see and/or have access to information obtained by the Application?

The only information shared with third parties are the search terms entered by you, and if you choose to allow it, location data. The location transmission can be disabled by you at any time from within the Location privacy settings within iOS / macOS. This is used by the search service providers to provide more relevant searches. Their usage of your location is outlined by their respective privacy policies. Historical searches recorded in the Application are not accessible by third parties.

You can stop all collection of information by the Application easily by uninstalling the Application.

Data Retention Policy, Managing Your Information

Only historical search terms are retained by the Application. These may be deleted at any time from within the Application at your discretion. All data retention and management formed as a result of entering a search term in the Application falls under each individual search service provider's guidelines.


We do not use the Application to knowingly solicit data from or market to children under the age of 13. This app has been rated in accordance with App Store Rating policies, and as such, it has been rated only for an appropriate audience, given the open and unfiltered searching nature of the Application (excluding any safe search filters on any search service provider platforms).


Any and all search terms entered in the Application fall under the security measures outlined by each individual search service provider.


This Privacy Policy may be updated from time to time for any reason. We will notify you of any changes to our Privacy Policy by posting the new Privacy Policy. You are advised to consult this Privacy Policy regularly for any changes, as continued use is deemed approval of all changes.

Your Consent

By using the Application, you are consenting to our processing of your information as set forth in this Privacy Policy now and as amended by us. "Processing,” means using cookies on a computer/hand held device or using or touching information in any way, including, but not limited to, collecting, storing, deleting, using, combining and disclosing information, all of which activities will take place on device, except for the transmission of a search term request to a provider's servers. These external requests will be processed and handled in the search service provider's base of operations, potentially including remote server sites or headquarter sites.
