Updated Jan 12th, 2023

This Privacy Policy provides our policies and procedures for collecting, using, and disclosing your information. This Privacy Policy governs your access of the Orangedox Services ("Services"), regardless of how you access it, and by using our Services you consent to the collection, transfer, processing, storage, disclosure and other uses described in this Privacy Policy. All of the different forms of data, content, and information described below are collectively referred to as "information."

1. The Information We Collect and Store

We may collect and store the following information when running the Orangedox Service:

Information Provided when Connecting a Cloud Storage Account

When you connect a Cloud Storage Account ("Cloud Account") to our Services, we collect the following information from your Cloud Account: your account number, name, country and email. Examples of Cloud Accounts could be Google Drive, Dropbox, Youtube or Salesforce.

Preview Stuff

Shared Stuff that can be previewed online ("Preview Stuff") includes, but is no limited to, PDF's and Microsoft Office documents, images, videos, audio, code and text files. Any Cloud Account file accessed to create Preview Stuff is stored using 256 bit encryption on our servers.

Shared Stuff

When sharing your Cloud Stuff using the Service ("Shared Stuff") the following information is collected: the reference id to the file within your Cloud Account, a publically facing URL to the file provided by the Cloud Account, and the name and description of the file. In some cases a security change is required on the Cloud Account to share your Shared Stuff: if required our Services will make this change on your behalf.

Cloud Account Files

With the exception of Preview Stuff, at no time do we access, modify or create files found on your Cloud Account. Meta data, data related but not included within your files, may be used for your Shared Stuff.


We also use "cookies" to collect information and improve our Services. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your Device. We may use "persistent cookies" to save your registration ID and login password for future logins to the Service. We may use "session ID cookies" to enable certain features of the Service, to better understand how you interact with the Service and to monitor aggregate usage and web traffic routing on the Service. You can instruct your browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all aspects of the Service.

Profile Information

We also use third party services to help confirm your identity on Orangedox. This identity ("Profile") is stored on our servers and may include information such as: first name, last name, sex, email address, photo(s), work history, social media accounts etc. You can edit this identity for both privacy and correctness at any time. Your Profile information may be shared with other users of our Services and those who you share you Shared Stuff with.

2. How We Use Personal Information

We also collect some information (ourselves or using third party services) using logging and cookies, such as IP address, which can sometimes be correlated with Personal Information.

We may use certain trusted third party companies and individuals to help us provide, analyze, and improve the Service (including but not limited to data storage, maintenance services, database management, web analytics, and improvement of the Service's features). These third parties may have access to your information only for purposes of performing these tasks on our behalf and under obligations similar to those in this Privacy Policy

Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement Requests; Protection of Orangedox's Rights.

We may disclose to parties outside Orangedox your Personal Information when we have a good faith belief that disclosure is reasonably necessary to (a) comply with a law, regulation or compulsory legal request; (b) protect the safety of any person from death or serious bodily injury; (c) prevent fraud or abuse of Orangedox or its users.
