Evernote Team Goes Back and Revises New Privacy Policy

For those who followed the site this week, I posted an article talking about the data industry and how such services are looking to enhance their AI capabilities at the expense of our privacy. As I said earlier, companies like Facebook and Google live on top of user behavioral data, and the search giant even saves all the information you search, text and voice, on their servers in order to improve the quality of web services. search.

I believe the Evernote team will no longer ask for access to user notes.

Facebook has recently updated its terms of service and privacy policy, where it will share information with WhatsApp, one of its companies. This type of data collaboration has been revoked in the United Kingdom and is under discussion on the European continent, a process headed by Germany.

Companies like Google and Facebook do not revoke their privacy policies or terms of service without being legally charged. However, the Evernote team says they listened to their users' feedback after updating their privacy policy and decided to remove from this document the part that provided access to user data by the company's employees, check out:

After receiving a lot of feedback from our customers showing concerns about the upcoming changes to our Privacy Policy in the coming days, Evernote is reaffirming its commitment to maintaining privacy as the focal point of everything we create.

As a result, we will no longer implement the changes previously announced in our Privacy Policy that were scheduled to take effect on January 23, 2017.

(…)

In addition, we will make automated learning technologies available to our users, but no employee will be able to read gradebooks as part of this process unless users choose to do so.

What reaches users in the coming weeks is still a mystery, but I believe the Evernote team will no longer ask for access to users' notes. I acknowledge the company's efforts to go back and hope that the service's users have actually been able to keep the promised privacy when using Evernote is maintained.

Evernote reviews change in Privacy Policy in response to feedbacks

Trust is at the heart of our service. That means we need to be transparent, admit our stumbles, and commit to making the Evernote experience the best it can be, from the way the app works across platforms to the way we communicate with the people who use it. That was the message from Evernote CEO Chris ONeill today.

After receiving a lot of feedback from our customers showing concerns about the upcoming changes to our Privacy Policy in the coming days, Evernote is reaffirming its commitment to maintaining privacy as the focal point of everything we create.

As a result, we will no longer implement the changes previously announced in our Privacy Policy that were scheduled to take effect on January 23, 2017.

Instead, over the next few months we will review our current Privacy Policy to review our customers' concerns, reinforcing that their data remains private as a standard, and confirming that their trust in Evernote is well founded.

In addition, we will make automated learning technologies available to our users, but no employee will be able to read gradebooks as part of this process unless users choose to do so. We will invite Evernote customers to help us build a better product by joining the program.

The announced change to our privacy policy made it seem that we didn't care about the privacy of our customers or their notes. This was not our intention and our customers showed us that we made mistakes, without uncertainty. We listened to what they had to say and are acting immediately to correct that, ONeill said.

We are excited about what we can offer Evernote customers through the use of automated learning, but we need to ask for permission rather than assuming we have permission. We apologize if we disappoint our customers and are reviewing our entire privacy policy because of this.

Evernote remains committed to the following:

Evernote employees will not see and will not view your notes without your express permission.

Evernote complies with the law in ways that keep customer data privacy first.

Our Three Data Protection Laws remain intact: your data is yours, protected, and portable.

This is the standard we seek to achieve and we thank our customers for reminding us of it.
