Use of cookies and similar technologies

This article explains how we use technologies like cookies and pixel tags.

Cookies

Cookies are small data files sent to your browser when you visit a site. We use both our own cookies, as well as third-party cookies, to do a few different things:

  • Log you in to our services
  • Remember preferences and settings
  • Keep your account secure
  • Better understand how people are using our services, and improve and promote those services based on that information

To promote our services, we use third-party service providers that may set cookies on your device. This helps third-party service providers understand your advertising preferences so they can show you ads that are more relevant to your interests.

Pixels

A pixel tag ("pixel") is a small piece of code that can be embedded on websites and emails. We use pixels and cookies to learn how you interact with our webpages and emails. This information helps us, and the advertising services providers we use, better promote our services. For example, if you visit one of our Dropbox Business pages, you may later see an ad for Dropbox Business when you visit a tech news site.

OPT-OUT and DNT

You can set your browser to not accept cookies, but this may limit your ability to use the Services. Our systems currently don’t respond to DNT:1 signals from browsers visiting our websites, but Dropbox adheres to the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising ("Principles").

You can opt-out of collection of information by third-parties that adhere to the Principles and that we use to help us promote our services by visiting www.aboutads.info/choices.
