I'm also worried about this, but also fear datamining by my ISP. So I
completely ditched Google, and split my queries between Cloudflare and
Quad9 - neither gets the complete picture.

As running a recursive resolver isn't rocket science, I've considered
setting up my own on some cheap VM's from whomever, with DNS over TLS
between my home network and personal resolvers. This way only the
authoritative services know.

If there was a way to share hosting costs with a small to medium number
of other users, it would be worth it. But for just myself I concluded
it wasn't.
