Information We Collect About You
While Users, including minors, may use many features on our Site without providing any Personal Information, we sometimes collect Personal Information as part of an activity and/or in connection with the Services. For the purposes of this Policy, “Personal Information” is information that we can directly associate with a specific person without additional information, such as a name, email address, birthday, age, and telephone number. You may submit Personal Information to us, such as when subscribing to receive our updates. We may also collect Personal Information from the messages you send to us through our messaging features on the Website.
We do not intend to collect Personal Information from a child under the age of 13 without the permission of a parent or guardian. If a child under the age of 13 provides his or her information, we will follow up with that child to request a parent or guardian’s contact information, and we will then contact the parent or guardian to request consent. If consent is not given, then we will delete the child’s information.
If you have reason to believe that a child under the age of 13 has provided information to us without the consent of a parent or guardian, please contact us, and we will endeavor to delete that information from our databases. Separately, if we determine through other mechanisms that a child under the age of 13 has provided information to us without the consent of a parent or guardian, we will endeavor to delete that information from our databases.
We may combine Personal Information with Other Information, in which case we will treat the combined information as Personal Information. We also may combine information that we have about you with additional information that we or third parties collect in other contexts—such as our communications with you via email or other inquiries you direct to us. In those circumstances, we will treat the combined information in accordance with this Policy.
“Other Information” is any information we collect that is not Personal Information. We may collect Other Information about Users automatically through the Website. This may include information such as your IP address or domain name, your Internet service provider, the date and time of your visit, your use of the Website or Services during your current session or over time (including the pages you view and the files you download), the URLs from the websites you visit before or after navigating to the Website, your computer’s operating system and browser type, your software or hardware attributes (such as device IDs, device OS or device type), search keyword or search engine, your general geographic location (e.g., your city, state or metropolitan region), or precise, real-time location data pertaining to your mobile device.
We collect such Other Information using the following technologies:
- Server Logs. When you use the Website or Services, we automatically receive and record certain information from your computer (or other device) and your browser. To obtain such information, we may use server logs or applications that recognize your computer and gather information about its online activity.
- Pixel Tags. The Services or the emails that you receive from us may use an application known as a “pixel tag” (also known as a “clear gif” or “web beacon”). A pixel tag is an electronic file that usually consists of a single-pixel image. It can be embedded in a web page or in an email to transmit information, which could include Personal Information. For example, it allows an email sender to determine whether a user has opened a particular email.
- Collaboration with Third–Party Data Collectors. We may partner with certain third parties to collect, analyze, or use some of the information described above. For example, we may allow third parties to set cookies or use pixel tags or other tracking mechanisms (such as tags or scripts) on the Services or in email communications from us, or we may allow third parties to use an application software development kit or a server-to-server connection to collect information, including device identifiers. The information collected by third parties using these technologies may be used for a variety of purposes, including analytics, as described in the “Third Party Analytics” section below.
How We Use Your Information
We use your Personal Information and Other Information to provide the Services to you, including video meetings using Zoom video conferencing; respond to your requests; send you administrative and marketing communications; analyze how Users use the Website or Services; understand our Users’ demographics and other information; improve our Website and Services or create new programs and services; engage in analytics; and comply with legal or regulatory requirements or protect our rights and interests or the rights and interests of others. Note that the interactions that occur through the Zoom platform may be recorded and retained for our internal business purposes, including without limitation for training, dispute resolution, improving our Services, and legal purposes, as necessary.
The Website uses Google Analytics to help collect and analyze certain information for the purposes discussed above. To opt out of Google Analytics, please visit https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
How We Share Your Information
We may share your information with the following third parties:
- Legal Purposes. We may disclose your information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation such as a judicial or governmental subpoena or warrant; (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of any person or entity; (iii) act in urgent circumstances to investigate or protect the personal safety of users of the Website, the Services, or the public; or (iv) protect against legal liability, prevent suspected fraud or establish, protect or exercise our legal rights.

“Do Not Track”
Our Website does not respond to “do not track” browser headers or signals.
Third Party Links, Websites, Apps, and Communication Technologies
We use reasonable physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect your information against loss or unauthorized access, use, modification, or deletion. However, no security program is 100% secure, and thus, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your Personal Information or Other Information.
Information for Users Outside the United States
The Website and the Services are directed only to residents of the United States. If you are accessing this site from outside of the United States, the information that we collect through the Website is transferred to and processed in the United States for the purposes described in this Policy. The data protection laws in the United States may be different from, and less stringent than, those in your country of residence.
