Use of Zoom

We use the video conferencing tool Zoom from the American software company Zoom Video Communications. The company is headquartered in San Jose, California, 55 Almaden Boulevard, 6th Floor, CA 95113. Thanks to "Zoom", we can easily hold a video conference with customers, business partners, clients and employees without software installation. In this privacy policy, we will go into more detail about the service and inform you about the most important aspects of data protection.

What is Zoom?

Zoom is one of the world's most popular video conferencing solutions. With the "Zoom Meetings" service, for example, we can hold an online video conference with you, but also with employees or other users via a digital conference room. So we can easily get in touch digitally, exchange information on various topics, send text messages or even make phone calls. In addition, you can also use zoom to split the screen, exchange files and use a whiteboard.

Why we use Zoom?

It is important to us that we can communicate with you quickly and easily. And that's exactly what Zoom offers us. The software program also works directly via a browser. This means that we can simply send you a link and start the video conference. In addition, of course, additional functions such as screensharing or file sharing are very practical.

Which Data is Stored by Zoom?

If you use Zoom, data is also collected from you so that Zoom can provide its services. On the one hand, this is data that you consciously provide to the company. This includes, for example, your name, telephone number or e-mail address. However, data is also automatically transmitted to Zoom and saved. This includes, for example, technical data of your browser or your IP address. In the following we will go into more detail about the data that Zoom can collect and store from you:

If you provide data such as your name, your user name, your e-mail address or your telephone number, this data is stored by Zoom. Content that you upload while using the zoom is also saved. These include, for example, files or chat logs.

The technical data that Zoom automatically saves include the IP address mentioned above, the MAC address, other device IDs, device type, which operating system you use, which client you use, camera type, microphone and speaker type. Your approximate location is also determined and stored. Furthermore, Zoom also stores information about how you use the service. For example, whether you "zoom in" via desktop or smartphone, whether you use a phone call or VoIP, whether you participate with or without video, or whether you request a password. Zoom also records so-called metadata such as duration of the meeting/call, start and end of meeting participation, meeting name and chat status.

Zoom mentions in its own privacy policy that the company does not use advertising cookies or tracking technologies for your services. Only on their own marketing websites such as are these tracking methods used. Zoom does not sell on personal data and does not use them for advertising purposes.

How Long and Where is the Data Stored?

Zoom does not announce a concrete time frame in this respect, but emphasises that the collected data will remain stored as long as it is necessary for the provision of the services or is necessary for their own purposes. Longer data will only be stored if this is required for legal reasons.

In principle, Zoom stores the collected data on American servers, but data can arrive worldwide at different data centers.

How Can I Delete or Delete My Data or Prevent Data Storage?

If you do not want data to be saved during the zoom meeting, you will have to skip the meeting. You also have the right and the possibility to have all your personal data deleted. If you have a zoom account, you will find a list of the available accounts under instructions on how to delete your account.

We hope to have given you an overview of data processing by zoom. Of course, it is always possible that the company's privacy policy may change. Therefore, we recommend that you also read the Zoom data protection declaration for more information at

Change of our Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to amend this privacy policy to always comply with the latest legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the privacy policy, e.g. when introducing new services. Your new visit will be subject to the new privacy policy.
