Hi, till now I used EverNote but I came to know that Evernote employees can access our notes from the backend but Evernote in their new policy in 2017 said that they WON'T anymore.

Article - https://thenextweb.com/apps/2016/12/15/evernote-employees-can-now-read-your-notes-heres-how-to-stop-them/

But I'm thinking that what if some of the employees can still access our notes from the backend? Who knows what anyone can do on the internet right?

My question why would they even access our notes in the first place? They are providing service and but have NO right to take a look at anyone's notes. That's the way I and everyone thinks.

I use Evernote for both my personal and business purpose and I certainly would NOT want anyone from the backend to see my personal as well as business notes and stuff.

I think they can anytime access our notes anytime without even letting us know and are still doing it.

I only need a digital note-taking app for 1 device and that's my lappy. I barely use my phone.

Also, heard that Evernote indexes my notes so that I can search for them? Why just why?

Then I looked into OneNote and I couldn't find any issue other than sync problems and maybe MS spies too? Who knows?

Then I looked at SimpleNote as it's open-source and I saw that in their privacy policy, they tell us NOT to keep any sensitive info as they will get indexed too for search purpose. I think they removed that from their privacy policy now.

I just need a good and compact digital note-taking app like EverNote where I can put images, pdfs or multiple types of formattings etc.

I am on Windows btw.

Any recommendation fellas? What do you use for your daily business and personal purpose?

Sure they have the right. You agreed to it when signing up. If you want privacy use another tool.

Any recommendation of a good note-taking app mate?

A little notebook (paper) does wonders. Not sure what kind of notes you put down but I don't want to go back to digital for on-the-go notes :) (Din A6)
