Why contains the SQLite DB all my Google Contacts ?

Recommended Posts


i was just checking what Evernote does in the background and noticed that all the notes & data is written to a SQLite Database ( ofcourse without any security or encryption :) )

anyhow, i don't care as i'm the only one using that computer but i have a problem with the following:

That database contains a table "extUser_attr" which contains all my Google Contacts. Which means that You "evernote" has access to my contacts.... 

Now, my question is, why do they keep my contacts, is this compliant with the privacy ? and can they use this for marketing purposes as america has a "legal optin" which is diffenent than the "legal optout" in Europe. 

SQLite DB can be found on: %userprofile%\evernote\Databases\<username>.exb

Thanks for your reply
