If you sign up for notifications or updates, or participate in our surveys, we may ask you for your name, email address, and job title or role.
Communications. If you contact us directly, we may receive additional information about you. For example, when you contact our Customer Support Team, we will receive your name, email address, the contents of a message or attachments that you may send to us, and other information you choose to provide. If you subscribe to our newsletter, then we will collect certain information from you, such as your email address. When we send you emails, we may track whether you open them to learn how to deliver a better customer experience and improve our Services.
Zoom Call Recordings. If you use our Services to record or transcribe your Zoom calls, we will receive the personal information contained in the content of those calls.

Information from Cookies and Similar Technologies. We and third party partners collect information using cookies, pixel tags, or similar technologies. Our third party partners, such as analytics and advertising partners, may use these technologies to collect information about your online activities over time and across different services. Cookies are small text files containing a string of alphanumeric characters. We may use both session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie disappears after you close your browser.

We also receive the contents of the call including the call audio, video, and speaker identification. By using our Services to record or transcribe Zoom calls, you understand that your call will be recorded, and you agree to allow us to monitor and/or record your call. Please note that the contents of the call may also contain the personal information of other meeting participants, such as your co-workers or individuals from other organizations. Some states or countries require all parties to consent before recording a video or audio call — not just the consent of one party to the communication (i.e., yourself). Please make sure you have the necessary permissions from other meeting participants before sharing personal information with us.

Please note that linking an Outlook Calendar or a Google Calendar account is core to our Services and without linking either an Outlook Calendar or a Google Calendar, you will not be able to successfully use our Services.
Other third parties. We may receive additional information about you, such as demographic data, from third parties such as data enrichment partners and combine it with other information we have about you.
Please note that personal information collected by a third party in this manner is subject to that third party’s own data collection, use, and disclosure policies. Please see the “Third Parties” section below for more information.
