Parental consent requirement for educational institutions

If you are a school, school district, teacher or other educator and want your students who are under the age of 13 to create Evernote service accounts, including in conjunction with the establishment of an Evernote Business account for the school or a group of students at the school, you will need to obtain parent or guardian consent before creation of such child accounts. Regardless of which entity you contract with (as described in our Terms of Service and Evernote Business Agreement), your account data will be stored in the United States. Therefore, under those terms, you agree that you are responsible for complying with the U.S. Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) and, to the extent applicable, The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”).

This means you must notify –via direct notice as required by COPPA – those students’ parents/guardians of the personally identifiable information Evernote will collect and obtain parental/guardian consent before your students establish accounts or use the Service. When obtaining such consent, you must provide parents/guardians with a copy of our Privacy Policy. You must keep all consents on file and provide them to us if we request them. For more information on complying with COPPA, see the U.S. Federal Trade Commission’s website at http://www.ftc.gov/privacy/coppafaqs.shtm.
