When it comes to the handling of personal data there is an important difference between using Zoom with a SDU account and with a free account.
Always make sure, that you are using Zoom with your SDU account. This way, the handling of personal data is regulated and you don't need to worry. SDU have agreements with Zoom about the handling of data in compliance with GDPR.

The way to determine if you are using your SDU account:
1. Be sure to log in to Zoom with you SDU-account ('Sign in with SSO' - guide attached above on this page)
2. Check that your meeting URL starts with ''

In general, video services like Zoom, Teams or Skype for Business should not be used for sharing documents containing sensitive personal data. If you have to share sensitive personal data, use Onedrive,  Sharepoint or Nextcloud.
