Zoom privacy notice

During our Virtual Open Day we will be using Zoom Webinar to host our live course sessions, where you’ll have the opportunity to interact with our academics from a range of courses in a live Q&A.

How will your data be used and stored from these sessions?

You will need to provide a name and email address when prompted by Zoom to access the session, which will be stored by Zoom in accordance with their GDPR compliance policies.

This information is only stored by Zoom for the purpose of host reporting, whereby Sheffield Hallam will be able to access data on the following:

  • Registration: Displays a list of registrants and their registration details.
  • Attendee: Displays details about each attendee.
  • Performance: Displays engagement statistics on registration, attendance and feedback.
  • Q&A: Displays questions and answers from the webinar.
  • Polling: Displays each attendee poll result.

Sheffield Hallam will use the performance category of statistics including registration and attendance figures, but all personal data will be deleted once the Virtual Open Day has ended. Zoom also automatically deletes all data six months after a Zoom Webinar has ended.

Your personal data will not be shared with any third parties.

Will my personal information be visible during or after the session?

Once the session has been started by the host, you will be placed in a Webinar room where the only visible participants will be the host/co-host(s) - your email address will not be visible to any other participants who are attending the event.

We will also have video and audio turned off for attendees, so you will not appear on camera and your microphone’s audio will be switched off too.

During the session, you will be encouraged to submit any questions for the academics hosting the event, which will be relayed to them by the co-host. These questions and your name will be visible to any other attendees, and so we recommend that you do not use your full name when prompted to allow access to the session.

These sessions will be recorded – only the presenter's view will be visible in the recording, and will not contain any email addresses. If you have contributed a question, then the name you have provided will show, as per the guidance above. These recordings may be uploaded to our YouTube channel and used on our website to allow participants to re-visit content, or for those who missed the sessions on the day.

How do I find out more about how you use my data?
