What changes are you making to beta terms?
Our updated beta terms don’t affect your ability to access betas or early access features, but they do affect your ability to talk about them. Now, if you sign up to test a beta or early access feature, you agree to (1) keep the feature confidential; and (2) allow Dropbox to reach out to you for feedback about your experience. This allows us to continue fine-tuning the feature to ensure that we get things right and help our users get the most out of Dropbox.
I’m worried about Brexit. Will I be able to continue using Dropbox if the UK leaves the European Union?
Yes, Dropbox has taken steps to ensure that data transfers from the UK to the US will continue to be covered by our Privacy Shield certification if the UK leaves the European Union.
What if I don’t want to agree to these terms?
