Features & Functionality

WhaleSlide - Mobile World Congress: »WhaleSlide is a beautiful new search engine dedicated to privacy, sharing and charity. Human knowledge is key to discovery so we’ve made it possible for users to curate content found online into ‘Collections’ and share it with the world. Find more than just algorithmically ranked links and tap into a world of true human influence. Money users raise online is donated to charity and we offer WhaleSlide as a WhiteLabel for organisations eager to create a search engine of their own. If you’re looking for totally private and ad-free search with a conscience then WhaleSlide is for you.« Source

FAQ: »We make our money through anonymised affiliate links. Retailers pay us for leading people to their products, as they do with other search engines. The big difference is that we share that money with charities and good causes. We are partnered with more than 17,000 retailers and users can identify those that are taking part through a 'charity' icon in our search results. All of the purchases made through WhaleSlide are anonymised and can't be traced to an individual.« Source
