Privacy Policy and Instructions for Using Zoom at TU Darmstadt

In the current corona situation, the Technical University of Darmstadt has decided to use Zoom in teaching, research and administration. This decision is the result of weighing up factors such as data protection compliance, data security stability, scalability, flexibility of individual settings and license costs.

In the past few weeks, the media coverage of Zoom has referred to security gaps on various occasions. Some of the security gaps can be avoided with the help of individual settings.
