According to the Stack Diary report. Sections 10.2 and 10.4 mostly highlighted howZoom handles user data.

Section 10.2 outlines that Zoom can access, use, collect, share, manage, and store service-generated data with user consent for "any purpose." Application categories here include machine learning or artificial intelligence, including algorithm and model training and refinement. The section 10.4 says that the customer retains ownership of the webinar invitations, and the Zoom license allows them to provide the service utilizing content. However, for AI, it does not use audio, video, or chat content for training their models without user consent.

Users can also allow the app to use and take their content for their AI models, Hashim added. It was also mentioned that the user content is only taken for improving the customer experience and enhancing their AI services.

The blog post also outlines that the AI will not use education or medical-related information to train their AI models without the user’s permission.

Also, note that Zoom’s AI features have been rolled out on a trial basis. The AI feature includes automatic meeting summaries and chat composition driven by AI. Owners and administrators of Zoom accounts will have the option of enabling these AI features.
