What if the account was disabled for violating terms of service?

Hello Lusil,
I read the material under termination of an account but it doesn’t say what happens to the files after your account is terminated.

As this page outlines (specifically, look for 'retention'), this would depend on the case @Underdog1101

 

Let us know if you have any additional concerns.

Privacy when uploading files

When you upload a file, what kind of information does Dropbox obtain? For example, if I upload a file, can they tell which device I used to upload it? Another example is would they know the location of where I uploaded the file?
