Free data transfer sites?

Are there any free sites for uploading larger files for others to download? I occasionally need to send someone a file larger than my email service will allow. Dropbox I think requires both parties have an account to transfer files. Any other suggestions?

I have a 25mb limit on email and a 29mb file. In future might need 50mb capacity.

Hell, I would pay $5 for each time I send a larger file.
 
I ask about sync.com because they claim better security and definitely better privacy. I think dropbox can look at all your shit and their officiates may also be privy to your shit.

If you don't want people in your shit, don't put it on cloud services. I don't care what company X Y or Z says. It's on the cloud, someone can access it.

Pick your poison and run with it.

You can always manually encrypt stuff before you put it on there with gpg or whatever other mechanism makes sense.

Some NAS also have functions for doing this like Synology.
 
It doesn't need to be completely free. But any regular fee might not be worth it with the infrequently of use.

I know onedrive doesn't allow nude images which might be an issue for professional photographers. And like I said about sync.com they claim your data is encrypted even from them once uploaded. And I guess Canadian laws take privacy very seriously.
