What data is processed?
When using “Zoom”, various types of data are processed. The scope of the data also depends on the data provided by the user before or during participation in an “online meeting”.

Text, audio and video data: Participants may have the opportunity to use the chat, question or survey functions in an “online meeting”. To this extent, the text entries made there are processed in order to display them in the “online meeting” and, if necessary, to log them. In order to enable the display of video and the playback of audio, the data from the microphone of the terminal device and from any video camera of the terminal device are processed accordingly for the duration of the meeting. Users can switch off or mute the camera or microphone themselves at any time via the “Zoom” applications.
In order to participate in an “online meeting” or to enter the “meeting room”, participants must at least provide information about their name.
Scope of processing
We use “Zoom” to conduct “online meetings.” We record all “online meetings” and share that via email, short verbal message or also visible at the recording sign in the Zoom window. By entering the Zoom room (meeting or webinar), the participant gives their consent to the recording and its further processing, If recorded, the “Zoom” app will also show this.
If it is necessary for the purposes of logging the results of an online meeting, we will log the chat content. However, this will generally not be the case.
In the case of webinars, we may also process questions asked by webinar participants for purposes of recording and following up on webinars.
If you are registered as a user at “Zoom”, then reports of “online meetings” (meeting metadata, telephone dial-in data, questions and answers in webinars, survey function in webinars) may be stored at “Zoom” for up to one month.
