On Dropbox terms and conditions it reads.

We’re updating our Terms of Service for users who live outside the US, Canada and Mexico. They’re effective right away for users who sign up for Dropbox or upgrade to Dropbox Pro starting May 1st, 2015, and effective June 1st, 2015 for all other users. You can find out more here and see the prior Terms here.

When you use our Services, you provide us with things like your files, content, email messages, contacts and so on (“Your Stuff”). Your Stuff is yours. These Terms don’t give us any rights to Your Stuff except for the limited rights that enable us to offer the Services.

We need your permission to do things like hosting Your Stuff, backing it up, and sharing it when you ask us to. Our Services also provide you with features like photo thumbnails, document previews, email organization, easy sorting, editing, sharing and searching. These and other features may require our systems to access, store and scan Your Stuff. You give us permission to do those things, and this permission extends to our affiliates and trusted third parties we work with.
