Are notes really deleted from evernote's servers?

Recommended Posts

I've been reading Evernote security and privacy pages and I'm not sure if notes are been deleted from their servers.

It's privacy page (https://evernote.com/legal/privacy.php) says:



The Evernote service’s back-up and archiving systems may retain residual copies of your deleted Content for up to one year due to the nature of those systems’ operations.


So I understand that "deleted data" is really wiped out after one year (they keep database backups for one year). But it's security page (https://evernote.com/security/) says:



When a note is deleted, all references and connections to the data in that note are removed from our databases.


Does that mean that note's data itself is still in their databases but it's not linked to my account? If I have my CV in a note and I delete it, it doesn't matter if they only remove the "links" (or id column, whatever) to my note. Al my info would be accessible if somebody access that database. Have I misunderstood that phrase? Is data really removed (after one year)?

I suppose that only evernote members can know/answer this, so I'll cross my fingers :)
