What Are Cookies?
Cookies are small data files that a website 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 the Evernote Service, which may change over time. Please check back here periodically, as we may update this information from time to time.
You may disable any of these functional cookies as described below; but if you do, various functions of the Evernote Service may be unavailable to you or may not work as intended.
- Google Analytics. To learn more about Google Analytics and your privacy, visit the “How Google uses data when you use our partners' sites or apps” page at www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/. To opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics when using our website, visit http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
- Hotjar. To learn more about Hotjar and your privacy, visit https://www.hotjar.com/privacy. You can opt out of such tracking at any time by using a “Do Not Track” header. You can read more about how to do that by visiting https://www.hotjar.com/opt-out.
We collect a unique ad tracking identifier (the Advertising Identifier or “IDFA” on Apple devices and the Google Advertising 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, as described below. 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 website 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 website 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 website 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.

However, if you configure your browser to reject cookies, you may not be able to use Evernote products or services that require you to sign in or take advantage of all the features of the Evernote Service. In addition, information at the links we’ve provided in this document can help you disable specific cookies related to website performance and marketing.
You can configure your mobile operating system to limit or prevent the use or tracking of mobile identifiers such as IDFA and AID by toggling the relevant settings on your mobile device’s settings menu. Mobile identifiers are commonly used to recognize mobile devices in order to enhance user experiences, so disabling mobile identifier tracking may cause unintended errors during your use of Evernote mobile applications.
If you do not want to receive tracking pixels in emails we send you, you will need to disable HTML images in your email client, but that may affect your ability to view images in other email that you receive.
