In August 2023, Zoom made updates to their Terms of Service and privacy policies, specifically addressing changes related to AI features. Please note that these changes do not impact the TMU community, as our current license does not include the use of AI features. Zoom has also clarified their stance, stating that they do not use any of your audio, video, chat, screen sharing, attachments or other communications-like Customer Content (such as poll results, whiteboard and reactions) to train Zoom or third-party artificial intelligence models.
For more information, please read Zoom’s blog post: How Zoom’s terms of service and practices apply to AI features. (external link)
Privacy recommendations for online classes
Please review privacy recommendations intended for online classes. Please note, different settings may be required for confidential virtual meetings.
The university has conducted the privacy impact assessment and security assessment on Zoom. Please review the recommendations from the assessments:
When you are going to record the meeting:
- you need to let the participants know the meeting is recorded prior or at the start of the meeting,
- the host is responsible for the retention and deletion of the recordings in accordance with record retention schedule.
For questions about Zoom privacy, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will consult with the Privacy Office accordingly.
