Privacy and security

We chose to purchase Zoom because we had to replace physical education immediately because of the corona measures. There was no suitable alternative on this scale and in this period of time. We are aware of questions and concerns about privacy and security around Zoom. Extensive research has been conducted into the privacy and security risks and there is frequent contact with Zoom. We regularly implement measures that further improve the privacy and security.
