Notice to Members update April 9, 2020:
Because of the negative media coverage about Zoom, we are trying to keep members informed on updates and improvement being made to the platform. While ADRIC cannot “recommend” using Zoom or any particular platform (the choice to use Zoom and the responsibility to use it safely lies with the user), we recognize that it is the most popular for ODR because of its ease of use, relatively low cost and its breakout room functionality. That is why ADRIC negotiated a Group Plan as a member benefit with an even further reduced cost.
Zoom provided notice of some encouraging updates: see their blog.
Here is another article that may be of interest around some of the security issues.
Notice to Members updated April 6, 2020:
You may be aware of concerns the media have expressed about Zoom over the last week or so, most recently in the U of T’s Citizen’s Lab study and article released April 4: https://citizenlab.ca/2020/04/move-fast-roll-your-own-crypto-a-quick-look-at-the-confidentiality-of-zoom-meetings.
Zoom’s official response: https://blog.zoom.us/wordpress/2020/04/03/response-to-research-from-university-of-torontos-citizen-lab/.
The ADRIC Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) Task Force as well as a group of ADR practitioners from ADRIO and the OBA are looking into the risk issues of using Zoom for our members. Stay tuned for updates.
In the meantime, the article by Rick Weiler (former Chair of the OD RTF) may offer some comfort and tips for best practices: http://mediationblog.kluwerarbitration.com/2020/04/06/is-zoom-good-enough-for-mediation/

A note from Zoom’s Chief Legal Officer:
March 29, 2020
Privacy is an extremely important topic, and we want you to know that at Zoom, we take it very seriously. Here are the facts about user privacy as it relates to Zoom and your use of our services:
- We do not sell your personal data. Whether you are a business or a school or an individual user, we do not sell your data.
- Your meetings are yours. We do not monitor them or even store them after your meeting is done unless we are requested to record and store them by the meeting host. We alert participants via both audio and video when they join meetings if the host is recording a meeting, and participants have the option to leave the meeting.
- When the meeting is recorded, it is, at the host’s choice, stored either locally on the host’s machine or in our Zoom cloud. We have robust and validated access controls to prevent unauthorized access to meeting recordings saved to the Zoom cloud.
- Zoom collects only the user data that is required to provide you Zoom services. This includes technical and operational support and service improvement. For example, we collect information such as a user’s IP address and OS and device details to deliver the best possible Zoom experience to you regardless of how and from where you join.
- We do not use data we obtain from your use of our services, including your meetings, for any advertising. We do use data we obtain from you when you visit our marketing websites, such as zoom.us and zoom.com. You have control over your own cookie settings when visiting our marketing websites.
We are committed to protecting the privacy and security of your personal data. If you have questions, please contact the privacy team at firstname.lastname@example.org or the support team at https://support.zoom.us.
Thank you, and safe Zooming!
