Evernote CEO: 'We let our users down' with privacy policy change

Blair Hanley Frank | Dec. 19, 2016
The company will anonymise data that employees see to help with machine learning

A Google spokesperson didn't offer details beyond the company’s privacy policy, either, which says that the company uses information that it collects to -- among other things -- improve and develop new services.

Apple didn’t respond to a request for comment, but its privacy policy says the company may also use personal information for internal purposes including "auditing, data analysis, and research to improve Apple's products, services, and customer communications."

Evernote's reversal on its privacy policy means the company will have more to say about the specifics of its machine learning plans and user privacy in the future. At this point, the company is still working out what's going to happen, including what this change means for Evernote Business customers. The company's privacy policy won't be amended yet.
