Please be aware that data transfer via the internet is subject to security risks and, therefore, complete protection against third-party access to transferred data cannot be ensured.

Calling a shortcut, without browsing the website

The following data gets recorded when calling a shortcut and directly being redirected to the target URL – for instance when using via a browser plugin:

  • the shortcut id (as in /shortcuts/1/google-com)
  • the namespace id (an internal pointer to the shortcut's namespace)
  • the page type (console, url, api)
  • the source type (e.g. firefix-addon, opensearch, example)
  • whether the default keyword was used
  • the access time
  • the execution time

This data is used to collect statistics about shortcut usage, in order to improve their ranking in the autocomplete function and on the shortcuts overview.

Purpose of Registering

We offer you the opportunity to sign up for our website. The information entered when signing up, as shown in the registration form (username, email, password) is collected and stored solely for use by our website. When signing up for our website, we also store your IP address and the date and time you registered. This serves to protect us in the event a third party improperly and without your knowledge makes use of your data to sign up for our site. None of this information is transferred to third parties. Nor is any of this information matched to any information that may be collected by other components of our website.


On the basis of the Federal Data Protection Act, you may contact us at no cost if you have questions relating to the collection, processing or use of your personal information, if you wish to request the correction, blocking or deletion of the same, or if you wish to cancel explicitly granted consent. Please note that you have the right to have incorrect data corrected or to have personal data deleted, where such claim is not barred by any legal obligation to retain this data.
