Information security

Our reseller partner, Academia, will not have access to the files stores in your Dropbox account. It will only have user management admin access for creating and renewing accounts, and changing the email address associated with an account, and will manage these processes for us. Dropbox's website provides further details about administrative rights, including those of User Management Admins.

Our Dropbox information security guidance will help you to understand:

  • what data you can store within this public cloud service (Dropbox Business)
  • what classifications of data Dropbox can store on the basis of the current University Guidance on Data Security Classification.

Personal Dropbox accounts are not covered by this documentation, and as such are not authorised to store University of Cambridge data.

Intellectual property rights

You're not giving away your intellectual property rights to Dropbox and/or the University by using the service.

By choosing to take up the service users must implicitly grant a limited licence to Dropbox to enable the provision of that service. The University acts as an intermediary in this process.

It's not possible to use the Dropbox service without this limited licence being granted to Dropbox.

The limited licence does not grant Dropbox any intellectual property rights.

The University's position on intellectual property rights is not changed by taking up the Dropbox Business service.
