Is HU-Zoom safe?

I heard that there are some data protections issues with Zoom. Are these true and how can I protect my data?

We are aware of the criticism and current concerns. We try to document all measures taken with regard to Zoom and to communicate in a transparent way which data is collected in context with the use of Zoom. We try to configure Zoom in a way that aims for data security and handling as little data as possible. Please check our website concerning the issue:

Please also read the data protection note that was developed together with HU’s data protection officer.

We collect all questions regarding the use of Zoom in our specific Zoom-FAQs that we keep up to date.
