Zoom Terms of Service Update

UC San Diego's IT Services, in collaboration with Integrated Procure to Pay Solutions (IPPS), is actively monitoring changes to Zoom's terms of service.

At present, these changes have no immediate impact on the UC system. Specifically, Zoom's Artificial Intelligence (AI) features have not been activated within the UC’s account or within any other higher education or K-12 customer accounts. Zoom has acknowledged the need for comprehensive evaluation within the educational context before any such activation takes place.

Please be assured that UC San Diego would only consider enabling these features under circumstances where acceptable use terms and conditions are fully met. This would also require agreement across the campus regarding the funding necessary for the purchase of these new features.

For the latest information directly from Zoom regarding these changes to their terms of service, you may reference the Zoom Terms of Service Update. Should you have any questions or require further clarification, please don't hesitate to contact the Service Desk.
