What Are Cookies?
Cookies are small data files that a web site you visit may save on your hard drive. They usually include an anonymous unique identifier. A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive or pass on computer viruses.
What Cookies and Similar Technologies Does Evernote Use?
We describe in this document the cookies and similar technologies found on our Service. Please check back here periodically, as we may update this information from time to time.
Functional cookies are ones Evernote sets to enable the website to work as intended.
These cookies are necessary to enable you to move around our web site and use its features. Without these cookies, we can’t provide services you have asked for, like processing an order in the Evernote Market, for example.
We use other cookies to help recognize and remember you when you are logged into the Service so we can remember your settings and preferences, such as your language and region or your logged-in state. These cookies also may help us provide services you have asked for, such as watching a video or commenting on our user forum. These cookies do not track your browsing activity on non-Evernote websites.
As described below, you may disable any of these functional cookies; but if you do so, then various functions of the web site may be unavailable to you or may not work as intended.
The following analytics technologies are in use:
- Google Analytics. To learn more about Google Analytics and your privacy, visit http://www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html. To opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics when using our website, visit http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
- Chartbeat. To learn more about Chartbeat and your privacy, visit http://chartbeat.com/privacy/.
We collect a unique ad tracking identifier (the Advertising Identifier or “IDFA” on Apple devices and the Google Ad ID or “AID” on Android devices) from your device. These identifiers are unique to your device but you can reset them or limit their use through your device settings. These identifiers do not contain your name or email address. We use these ad tracking identifiers together with our analytics technologies in order to inform our targeted advertising initiatives.
Social Media Features
Our web site uses social media features (“Social Features”) provided by companies and services such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, YouTube, LinkedIn and others (depending on what country you’re in) to enable you to share information with these channels. The Social Features are identified on our web site by our display of the companies’ logos. These cookies are owned and controlled by third parties, and therefore the third parties – and not Evernote – are responsible for their use. As such, we can't guarantee that we have listed every cookie you might get from a third party since a third party could change these cookies at any time as their needs change.
When you visit a page on the Evernote web site that contains Social Features, your browser establishes a direct connection to the applicable social network’s servers. The Social Features inform the social networks what pages you have accessed on Evernote’s site, and, if you are logged into the social network, your visit may be logged to your account on that service. For example, if you click the Facebook “Like” button, that information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored by them. Even if you are not logged into the social network, and do not click on a Social Feature on the Evernote site, there is still a possibility that a Social Feature can transmit your IP address and cookie information to the operator of the social network. We will not transmit information regarding your account contents to such social networks.
