1. What personal information do WE Collect?

“Personal Information” is information that can be used to identify you as an individual or allow someone to contact you, as well as information attributed with such information. We may collect and process the following types of Personal Information about you:

Where we need to collect Personal Information by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you, and you fail to provide that Personal Information when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, to provide you with services). In this case, we may have to cancel a service you have with us but we will notify you if this is the case at the time.

2. How is YOUR personal Information Collected?

We collect different categories of Personal Information from different sources. We collect Personal Information through:

We also include tools on the Services that allow you to share and/or publicly post content or information from the Services to your profile on a third party social media. Third party social media platforms and blogging platforms have their own privacy policies which explain how they will use, protect and share your information, including any information you share on those platforms from the Services, and we encourage you to read them.

3. How is YOUR personal information used?

Legal Basis for processing your Personal Information

We use the Personal Information collected from you where there is an appropriate lawful basis. Most commonly, we gather and use your Personal Information:

Purposes for which we will use your Personal Information

We have set out below a description of the purposes we use your Personal Information, along with the relevant legal basis for processing that Personal Information.

We will only use your Personal Information for the purposes for which we collected it, unless otherwise permitted by law (such as if we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose). Please note that we may process your Personal Information without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.

To perform the above functions, and as mentioned above, we may match information collected from you through different means or at different times, including both Personal Information and Service Usage Information, and use such information along with information obtained from publicly accessible information (such as information available publicly on the internet). This information includes, for example, demographic information and updated contact information. We or the service providers may also use your information to assess the level of interest in, and use of, the Services, our emails and our other messaging campaigns both on an individual basis and in the aggregate.


Yes. We may share the information we collect with others for a variety of reasons. In addition to the kinds of information sharing you might expect, such as sharing what you voluntarily post to public areas on the Services with other users of the Services, or the information sharing that you consent to, we may share your information (including any of the types listed in the WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT? section above):

5. How long will WE KEEP YOUR personal information?

We will endeavour not to keep your Personal Information in a form that allows you to be identified for any longer than is reasonably necessary for achieving the permitted purposes. At the end of the applicable retention period, we may destroy, erase from our systems, or anonymize Personal Information as part of such efforts.

To determine the appropriate retention period for Personal Information, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the Personal Information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your Personal Information, the purposes for which we process your Personal Information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal or regulatory requirements. For additional details, please review the Zoom User Appearance Release for “The Call to Unite” and the Unite Terms of Use

6. How will WE PROTECT YOUR personal information?

We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards designed to protect your Personal Information, prevent unlawful or unauthorized processing of Personal Information, and prevent unauthorized disclosure of, or accidental loss of, or damage to, such information.

We may transfer Personal Information we collect about you to countries that may not guarantee the same level of protection for Personal Information as the one in which you reside. If you are located in the European Union or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, to the extent that Personal Information is transferred across borders to other third parties (as otherwise set out in this Policy), it will only be carried out when certain conditions as set out in the applicable legislation are complied with.

Unfortunately, while we endeavor to protect the security and integrity of sensitive Personal Information collected via the Services, due to the inherent nature of the internet as an open global communications vehicle, we cannot guarantee that any information, during transmission through the internet or while stored on our system or otherwise in our care, will be absolutely safe from intrusion by others, such as hackers.

If you correspond with us by email or using web forms like a “contact us” feature on the Services, you should be aware that your transmission might not be secure. A third party could view the information you send in transit by such means. We will have no liability for disclosure of your information due to errors or unauthorized acts of third parties during or after transmission.

If at any time during or after our relationship we believe that the security of your Personal Information in our care may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you of that development. If a notification is appropriate, we will endeavor to notify you as promptly as possible under the circumstances. If we have your email address, we may notify you by email to the most recent email address you have provided us. If you receive a notice from us, you can print it to retain a copy of it. To receive these notices, you must check your email account using your computer or mobile device and email application software. If you prefer for us to use the U.S. Postal Service to notify you in this situation, please email us at You can make this election any time, and it will apply to notifications we make after a reasonable time thereafter for us to process your request. You may also use this email address to request a print copy, at no charge, of an electronic notice we have sent to you regarding a compromise of your Personal Information.

7. What rights do YOU HAVE in relation to YOUR personal information?

You may have the right to consent to or to opt out of certain uses and disclosures of your Personal Information. For example, when you are asked to provide Personal Information on the Services, you may have the opportunity to elect to, or not to, receive messages from us by email. You may tell us that you do not want to receive our newsletter or promotional messages, by sending us your name and email address to: Please indicate that you are writing to request that you no longer receive a particular media notification from us. You can also opt out of our promotional emails by clicking on the opt-out link within the email you receive.

Please understand that it may take us a few days to process any opt-out request and that even if you opt out of receiving promotional correspondence from us, we may still contact you in connection with your relationship, activities, transactions and communications with us. Also, to stop receiving promotional messages from third parties who already have your contact information, please contact them directly.

You may have certain rights in relation to your Personal Information depending on the jurisdiction you reside in. If you have any questions about such rights, please contact us

8. Will this POLICY be modified?

We may change this Policy from time to time. When we do, we will let you know by posting the changed Policy on this page with a new “Effective Date.” In some cases (for example, if we significantly expand our use or sharing of your Personal Information), we may also tell you about changes by additional means, such as by sending an email to the email address we have on file for you. In some cases, we may request your consent to the changes.

9. How do YOU tell US about changes to YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?

It is important that the Personal Information we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your Personal Information changes during your relationship with us. You may update or modify certain of the Personal Information that is stored in your user account on the Services (if you have one).
