Dropbox has again worried its customers and created a panic through its user base by publishing new terms and conditions. The newly updated terms of service left many customers thinking that Dropbox could share, modify or otherwise use the files that customers have uploaded to their accounts.
Dropbox has since modified their new terms and conditions yet again to clam its customers base explaining that the updates to their policies are to cover their services and its features.
“the permissions you give us to run the service, things like creating public links when you ask us to, allowing you to collaborate with colleagues in shared folders, generating web previews or thumbnails of your files, encrypting files, creating backups.”
“You retain ownership to your stuff. You are also solely responsible for your conduct, the content of your files and folders, and your communications with others while using the Services.”
It the second time in as many weeks that Dropbox have been in the news for privacy related issues as another service update to its system left user accounts wide open and able to be accessed by anyone for around 4 hours.
