Can students use Evernote Business?

Yes. However, as we state in our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy, we expect that use of Evernote by minors will only be done with the guidance, supervision and consent of their parents and guardians and/or authorized school officials. We rely on parents and guardians to ensure minors only use the Evernote Service if they can understand their rights and responsibilities. The school shall be responsible for obtaining any necessary parental / guardian or other permissions required under applicable laws prior to enabling minors to access or use the Evernote Business Account, as well as retaining such consents on file and providing them to us upon our request. Schools must provide parents / guardians with a copy of our Privacy Policy when obtaining parental / guardian consent.

For educational institutions in the United States, we require the school to be responsible for obtaining the consent of parents / guardians as required by the U.S. Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”). This means you must notify students’ parents/guardians of children under the age of 13 of the personally identifiable information we will collect about such child (as described in our Privacy Policy and obtain the requisite consent from such parent/guardian before the school permits such child to establish an account or use Evernote Business. When obtaining parental / guardian consent, the school must provide parents/guardians with a copy of our Privacy Policy. For more information on complying with COPPA, see the Federal Trade Commission’s website at We also caution you to ensure that you are complying with The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act and any local laws and policies the school may be required to follow.

Obtaining proper consent before proceeding with setting-up accounts for children is very important. If we become aware that children under age 13 have created Evernote accounts without such consent, we may be required to delete those accounts in order to be in compliance with COPPA.
