Stewardship of your data is a responsibility we embrace. These principles describe our commitment to your privacy and how we'll handle requests from government and law enforcement agencies seeking information about our users.
The requests we receive originate from all over the globe. At this time, we typically require non-US governments to work with US government agencies so that a US court may issue the appropriate legal process to Dropbox.
Law enforcement sends us a request for user information, such as a subpoena or search warrant.
We analyze requests to determine whether they are legally and procedurally valid. We narrow or resist requests when appropriate.
Once we’ve determined that a request is valid, we typically notify the user (unless we’re legally prohibited from doing so) and respond with an encrypted copy of the information specified in the legal process.
