Unlike traditional web crawlers, ^Cursor does not access or expose your personal information. Instead, the application repeats the following simple process:

requests a package from a server through a secure channel,
the package contains a limited number of webpage addresses preselected by a semantic unit,
your ^Cursor application downloads the text source of webpages set by these addresses but does not follow any anchors present in the source,
the downloaded data is compressed and then stored only temporarily in memory,
after the download phase, the data is gathered in a package and sent to a processing unit through a secure channel,
the processing unit extracts webpage addresses from the sources of gathered webpages that serves as input to ^Cursor,
you have the option to directly submit a webpage you find interesting,
you can also choose to make the websites found by your ^Cursor be accredited to your username, where this accreditation changes on each turn of the month, designating the username of the top ^Cursor, creating a racing condition,
you can watch the progress of your ^Cursor and set the speed at which it crawls, although its resource footprint is minimal (low memory / disk / network usage). This footprint virtually creates no additional load to the computer that runs it (only textual information is downloaded by the Cursor).
