ZOOM privacy policy

We have never been a fan of Zoom, but this latest update is out of this world…

While we had reservations about Zoom before (primarily due to the old-fashion user interface), their policy’s update has genuinely stunned 😵.

In the recent update to their terms and conditions (on the 7th of August), Zoom has included the following two paragraphs in section 10.2:

“You consent to Zoom’s access, use, collection, creation, modification, distribution, processing, sharing, maintenance, storage of [ the content you share in meetings ] [for any purpose, including training AI models]”.

“… you hereby unconditionally and irrevocably assign to Zoom … and your end users to unconditionally and irrevocably assign to Zoom all right, title, and interest in and to [ the content you share in meetings ], including all Proprietary rights… “

WTF?! It grants Zoom unprecedented control over what we say in meetings, potentially compromising our privacy and intellectual property rights.

Moreover, they want to train and tune their AI algorithms on our conversations.

And ironically, Zoom is pushing their workers to return to the office, arguing that their business model only made sense during the pandemic 🙈.

It’s good that we have alternative platforms like Google Meet that are available for free…until we find out they are doing the same 😓
