It's US company (StartPage not), they're obligated disclose ALL requisite
information to USG.

Also from their Terms:

"By submitting, posting, or displaying content as part of the Services,

It is VERY questionable to enable Disconnect as search engine by default
in TBB. It is doubly questionable after their money donation.
