As I was looking for the GPS Coordinate of some photos, I was surprised to see that in the exif meta-data of photos I have uploaded using dropbox, the exif data mentionned "Dropbox Inc." as Profile Copyright, here is a screenshot,
This is quite astonishing as first I'm paying for this online dropbox service, and secondly I did not remember anything or anywhere in the application where I would have given the copyright of my photos to dropbox ?
As anyone face this questions before ?
Hey there @rasatavohary - welcome to our forums and happy Monday!
Could you tell me where exactly are you seeing this information and if it would be OK if I reached out to you via email to the address you use for your forum's profile so we can have a further look into this with all of my tools available?
Ou wow, this is ugly 🤨
Just uploaded my photos. Can't see the EXIF data.
Photos without MetaData make no sense at all 😢!
It seems that Dropbox has purely batched all the photo online and removed silently what I've found a few month ago.
As I'm a business user, I would like to know if you could confirm me the following different points :
- Are the data and files I'm uploading to Dropbox are only and stritecly only used for the purpose of the service provided by Dropbox ? As to know store it and make it available online ?
- If these files are photo, after uploading them in dropbox, are these photos my solely property and won't be changed in term of property by Dropbox ?
- In the process of uploading the file, how does Dropbox guarantee that the files are not silently modified in any way by dropbox ?
I'm a little worried about the way my data are taken care by dropbox,
I would happy to start a conversation and have feed-back from dropbox,
When downloading the image previewed in the browser with the right click button, i'm missing the original exif data of photo,
But when downloading with the download button, I can see again my exif data, this is good,
Thanks for posting your inquiries here Zo (@rasatavohary ) - how are you today?
