ZoomInfo Technologies Inc. is unrelated to Zoom Video Communications Inc., the video teleconferencing solution Hamilton College uses.

This is a legitimate company that is providing notice of processing of personal data. ZoomInfo is required by law in some jurisdictions to provide notification of data processing, and provide such notices to all individuals included in our database, even where not required, in order to promote transparency and individual control over personal information. 

ZoomInfo collects data, including personal data, to sell to other businesses to use in their marketing. ZoomInfo is a legitimate company; be cautious with installing any plugins or software from ZoomInfo as it will seek to download information on you as part of their business model to sell for marketing.

The information is provided to customers or partners subject to restrictive license agreements that limit the use to those specified purposes and prohibits the unauthorized use or transfer of the information. ZoomInfo's customers may obtain the information via password protected account-based access to our database.

ZoomInfo endeavors to provide the most accurate information possible to its customers. We seek to verify the accuracy of our information as frequently as possible and to remove information that we learn to be inaccurate.

The foregoing rights may be subject to certain limitations pursuant to applicable law.

Sources of Personal Information
ZoomInfo gathers personal information from several sources, which include publicly available sources such as websites and government records, contributions from our customers, third party data providers, or through telephone interviews. Because information from several sources may be combined into one record, it may be difficult or impossible to identify the exact source of one particular piece of information.
