Our Privacy Policy


The following content is not written by a lawyer. The purpose of this page is to inform the reader on the privacy and security implication of using Simple‑for‑Ever.


Simple‑for‑Ever does not ask for any personal information except of what is necessary to deliver its service. It does not store or archive any of your content stored with the Evernote or Simplenote webservice. Your e-mail address is solely used to contact you regarding information about Simple‑for‑Ever and will never be sold to any third party. To improve the service, Simple‑for‑Ever uses Google Analytics.

Your Evernote credentials and content

In order to add or change existing notes, we have to obtain access to your Evernote account. We will only read, delete or change notes that were created by this service (which in turn means they originate from a note in your Simplenote account). We will not read, change or delete notes any other notes.

At no times we ask for your Evernote password or save any of your login information. We use the authentification via Evernotes OAuth service. We do not store any of your Evernote content (notes, tags, ...) on our servers. We store some account information on our servers in order to automatically sync between Evernote and Simplenote.

You can revoke Simple‑for‑Ever's ability to access your Evernote account by visiting your settings in Evernote (you need to be logged in Evernote to access your settings).

Your Simplenote credentials and content

Simplenote does not provide an authentification via OAuth, so we need to ask you for your Simplenote username and password. We need to store the password to be able to start an unattended sync on our servers. The password is stored with a SHA256 hash in the database. The hash key is stored outside of the database. We do not store any of your Simplenote content (notes, tags, ...) on our servers.

If you are not a premium user, we will only read your notes in Simplenote. If you are a premium user, the syncing of Simple‑for‑Ever might change your note if the corresponding note in Evernote was changed.
