Like our competitors (except for the major search engines like Bing, Google, and Yahoo), we use a third party search API. In our case, we use Bing Search API. Some may question if this creates privacy issues. Especially since Magelln's mandate is to protect user privacy. However, in a word, our response is no. Your privacy is fully preserved, and kept private. How? It is the IP addresses of our web servers which the Bing web servers see. Not yours. Our web servers Query and fetch the search results from the Bing web servers using the Bing Search API. That way, you are never on the radar of any third party.
That said, we do have plans of launching an actual web search engine. The architecture of the search engine and spiders (MagBots) has been developed. We anticipate that our first data center will consist of 10 - 15 servers: DC Alpha Romeo (DC-AR). DC-AR is forecast to index between 4 and 5 billion web pages in the first year. We will add new data centers on a regular basis to meet increased demand, and to expand indexing capacity. It is all about scalability, and our commitment to it. When will this happen? We are not sure. We are planning for 2017, but it is contingent upon securing funding: either via crowdfunding or venture capital.

If you are using an Android phone, you can find a QR Code reading app at Google Play on your device.
If you are using an iOS device (iPhone, iPad, etc.), you can find a QR Code reading app at the Apple iTunes App Store on your device.
If you are using a Windows phone, you can find a QR Code reading app at the Microsoft Store on your device.
