Source Code License
Effective Date: May 5, 2009
Thank you for your interest in Evernote! We invite you to access our web sites and use our Service (as defined below), but please note that your invitation is subject to your review and agreement with certain terms and conditions. These terms and conditions are set forth in this document, and in certain other policies, guidelines and other terms or conditions that may be presented to you from time to time at other locations in our web sites in connection with specific Service offerings (all of which may be updated from time to time and are collectively referred to as our “Terms of Service”). You need not accept this requirement to agree to our Terms of Service, but if you reject our Terms of Service you do not have any right to access or use our Service. If you do access our web site and use our Service, your use shall be deemed to accept the Terms of Service and be a party to a legally binding contract with Evernote Corporation (“Evernote,” “we,” and sometimes “us”). Of course, you may also be required or elect to enter into a separate written agreement or click “accept” or “agree” to become a party to another contract with Evernote (a “Separate Agreement”), and these Terms of Service shall not be considered to supersede the specific contractual terms of the Separate Agreement. If there is any contradiction between the terms of the Separate Agreement and these Terms of Service, then the terms of the Separate Agreement shall take precedence over the contradictory terms in the Terms of Service with respect to the subject matter of such Separate Agreement.
You may wish to save a copy of these Terms of Service for your records. In any event, be sure to regularly check these Terms of Service for any updates or other changes, which shall be legally binding upon you when we post them, whether or not we provide you any other notice of such changes. The then-applicable Terms of Service will be posted at www.evernote.com/about/tos, and we will indicate the date of each update at the end of the Terms of Service. Your continued use of the Service after any update will be deemed to represent your consent to be bound by, and agreement with, the new Terms of Service.

5. PROPRIETARY RIGHTS, LICENSES AND LIMITATIONS
You acknowledge and agree that Evernote (and any licensors to Evernote) own(s) all legal right, title and interest in and to the Service, including, without limitation, all software comprising a part of the Service (the "Software"), and all intellectual property rights therein (whether registered or not and wherever existing in the world).

Except for the limited license rights specifically granted to you in these Terms of Service (and any rights expressly granted to you in a Separate Agreement), Evernote and its suppliers own and shall retain all rights, title and interests, including, without limitation, intellectual property rights, in and to the Service and all Software utilized therein (and all copies thereof and related materials that are delivered or made available to you with the Service).

You also hereby grant each user of the Evernote Service a non-exclusive license to access your Content published in a Public Notebook and, for each user you permit access to your Private Notebook, a further license to access such Content, and to use, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display and perform such Content as permitted through the functionality of the Evernote Service and under these Terms of Service.
You retain copyright and any other rights you already hold in Content which you submit, post or display on or through, the Service. Other than the limited license you grant in the preceding paragraph of this Section, Evernote acknowledges and agrees that it obtains no right, title or interest from you (or your licensors) under these Terms of Service in or to any Content that you submit, post, store, transmit or display on, or through, the Service, including any intellectual property rights which subsist in that Content (whether those rights happen to be registered or not, and wherever in the world those rights may exist). You agree that you are solely responsible for protecting and enforcing those rights and that Evernote has no obligation to do so on your behalf.
Evernote hereby grants you a personal, worldwide, royalty-free, non-assignable and non-exclusive license to use the Software provided to you by Evernote as part of the Service as provided to you by Evernote, for the sole purpose of enabling you to use and enjoy the benefit of the Service as permitted by these Terms of Service, until your rights are terminated in accordance with these Terms of Service.

Further, you acknowledge that in using the Service to send electronic communications (including but not limited to email and uploading Content, and other Internet activities), you will be causing communications to be sent through computer networks owned by Evernote and third parties that are located in California and other locations in the United States and other countries and that, as a result, your use of the Service will likely result in interstate data transmissions. You understand that Evernote, in performing the required technical steps to provide the Service to our users, may make such changes to your Content as are necessary to conform and adapt that Content to the technical requirements of connecting networks, devices, services or media.
We reserve the right at any time and at our sole discretion to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service or any part thereof (including Software), with or without notice. You agree that we shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of any part of the Service. In connection with any modification of the Service, Evernote may automatically download and install software updates from time to time with the intention of improving, enhancing, repairing and/or further developing the Service, and you agree to permit Evernote to deliver these to you (and you to receive them) as part of your use of the Service.
You may discontinue your use of the Service at any time, for any or no reason and with or without notice. Evernote may also terminate the Service, or your access to or use of the Service or your account, with or without notice.

In the event of any termination, we will close your account and you will no longer be able to retrieve Content contained in that account or otherwise use the Service.
The Service may be supported by advertising revenue and may display advertisements and promotions on or in connection with the Service, and may be targeted to Content subject matter. You hereby agree that Evernote may present advertising in connection with the Service in consideration for the rights granted you to access and use the Service. Any decision to utilize advertising, and the manner, mode, extent and terms of any advertising, presented with the Service, are subject to change. We shall not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred by you as a result of any such practices or changes or as the result of the presence of such advertisers on the Service, including, without limitation, any change in the cost of obtaining any Service. Furthermore, your interactions with advertisers found on or through the Service, including, without limitation, all reliance upon advertising, all commercial transactions and legal obligations associated therewith, are solely between you and such advertisers.

In the event of such claim, we will provide notice of the claim, suit or action to the contact information we have for the account, provided that any failure to deliver such notice to you shall not eliminate or reduce your indemnification obligation hereunder.

(a) These Terms of Service constitute the entire agreement between you and Evernote and governs your use of the Service, except, and then only to the extent that you have entered into a Separate Agreement. These Terms of Service, as in effect from time to time, supersedes any prior agreements or earlier versions of these Terms of Service between you and Evernote for the use of the Service.

(b) You acknowledge and agree that each affiliate of Evernote shall be a third party beneficiary to these Terms of Service and that such other companies shall be entitled to directly enforce, and rely upon, any provision of these Terms of Service which confers a benefit on (or provides rights in favor of) them.

(c) These Terms of Service and the relationship between you and Evernote shall be governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflict of law provisions.
