When do these updates take effect?
Will these updates affect the way I use Dropbox?
How old must I be to use Dropbox?
To use our services, you must be at least 13 if you reside in the United States, and 16 if you reside anywhere else. If the law where you reside requires that you must be older in order to use Dropbox without parental consent, then you must be that older age.

What changes are you making to the dispute resolution terms in the Terms of Service?
We’ve made a number of changes to our dispute resolution terms in our Terms of Service. For example, we’ve made some changes to the process for resolving disputes informally, and we’ve made a number of updates to our arbitration provisions. Please read our updated Terms of Service to review all of the changes we’ve made.
Can I opt out of the arbitration provisions in the Terms of Service?
You can opt out of the agreement to arbitrate in the Terms of Service by clicking here and submitting the opt-out form within 30 days of first registering your account. However, if you agreed to a previous version of the Terms of Service that allowed you to opt out of arbitration, your previous choice to opt out or not opt out remains binding.
What if I don’t want to agree to these terms?
Do these changes apply to me if I’m an existing Dropbox Business Customer?
Our new Dropbox Services Agreement is effective January 12, 2022, and will apply to new and existing customers as of that date unless you and Dropbox have negotiated and signed a separate agreement.
Why is the Dropbox Business Agreement now called the Dropbox Services Agreement?
The Dropbox Business Agreement has been converted into a Dropbox Services Agreement that can cover Dropbox Business, HelloSign, DocSend, and future solutions offered by Dropbox. To support that change, we’ve reorganized our terms and added Service-Specific Terms in an appendix for terms that only apply to individual products or components. While the structure of the agreement has changed, the terms that apply to Dropbox Business customers are substantially the same.
