An organization has set up a link on its website to my dropbox account and has not removed it when requested. Is there some way to remove it or block it permanently on my end?
The purpose of the link is to provide people access to documents for an educational program. The link takes people to my account and they can see and access whatever documents I have in my account at the time even though the documents that may be in my account have nothing whatsoever to do with the educational program. In fact, I do not keep documents for the educational program in my DB account; the link, therefore, has no purpose but it permits people to access other unrelated information without my permission. The link was set up without my permission.
Thank you for the suggestions. I went through them and do not have any shared links and no information that would relate to the program the website link addresses.
Thank you again for your input. The link is from an organization's website to my account. People using the link would be looking for documents that are not in my account and would be able to find other documents that I have in my account that do not pertain to their purpose. I am wondering if it would be possible to close the account that I have and open a new, separate one.

This is your own personal account? It doesn't belong to a company you're working for? If it's your own account, then no one else can create a link to it. No one else can access the files in your account unless you've shared them. It's not possible for someone else to link into an account that they don't own.
