I want to make a proposal. I would appreciate, if EN would store the data of citizens of the EU in the EU. I know all the standard bla bla, how safe the data is. In fact it's not. Safe Harbor is over and we have now the Privacy Shield. But this is more or less the same, only with an other name. So as a non US citizen I don't have the control over my data. EN is holding the encryption keys and with the Patriot Act and FISA many people can have access to my data. And En can even be forced to keep the access secret. Some US companies even get money from the NSA for the access to the personal data of the customers. Legal backdoors. I don't know, if EN get also money for this, but after the last price "adjustment" I can imagine, that EN need badly money. Microsoft started to solve this problem by offering cloud services in the EU. This would be a feature that would be worth the price "adjustment".
I was just reading through the thread about Evernote building a datacenter in China and it got me thinking about the current news about the NSA PRISM program. I would like to understand the position of Evernote with regards to FISA requests. I'm an American citizen living abroad (for the past 12 years) so these developments concern me. If Evernote is receiving FISA requests, will the Evernote community be informed? Would you publish some type of transparency report? I would appreciate an official response on Evernotes position on the subject of data privacy. And yes, I have read your privacy which is very general (like most cloud providers). It would be nice to have clarification on your position in light of these developments. The fact that EN doesn't provide HTTPS to non-paying customers (however I believe this applies to desktop users) is simply stupid (I am a paying user FWIW). The whole discussion about the Chinese data center bugs me because no one mentioned to users that unless they are paying, their communication could be intercepted. It says to me that EN doesn't care too much (or don't understand) about data security. With all due respect to EN evangelists, please, I would prefer an official statement and not your opinion (esp., using the argument that if I am doing nothing wrong then I should not be worried).
