Class action filed against Zoom about data collection
Wexler Wallace LLP had filed a class action lawsuit against Zoom Video Communications, Inc. before the U.S. Court for the Northern District of California, for allegedly collecting the personal information of its users and disclosing such information to third parties, including Facebook, Inc.
This data transfer occurs when a Zoom user installs, opens or closes the popular Zoom iOS video conferencing application. Consumers are not meaningfully informed of these facts, and specifically that Facebook receives the data. As the complaint alleges, even information on non-Facebook users is sent to Facebook through Zoom’s video conferencing application.
