Updates to our Developer Terms and Conditions 

Since launching our new DBX Platform, we’ve been working to improve your developer experience. As we continue revamping our developer programs, we’re also making a few updates to our Terms and Conditions. 

Here’s a summary of the key additions and changes:

  • Enhanced security terms. We’ve updated our security requirements to ensure youre protecting the Dropbox user data that your applications access through the DBX Platform.
  • Confidentiality. We might exchange confidential information with each other, so we’ve added a clause to safeguard any sensitive information that we each disclose.
  • Arbitration. We’re adding an arbitration clause to our agreement with you. Arbitration is a faster and more efficient way to resolve legal disputes, and it provides a good alternative to things like state or federal courts, where the process could take months or even years. If you prefer to opt out of arbitration, just email developer-terms-opt-out@dropbox.com as explained in the new terms. 

For more detail, you can read the full Developer Terms and Conditions, which will go into effect on February 15, 2018. We’ve emailed registered developers these updates as well

If you have any questions, you can always reach us on our forum or via our contact form. For any broader feedback about your experience with the DBX Platform, we welcome you to fill out our developer survey.
