Zoom video conferencing being cleared up to restricted level.

Hemant made this Official Information request to Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet

Response to this request is long overdue. By law Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet should have responded by now (details and exceptions). You can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: Hemant

Dear Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet,

On the 30th of March 2020 in Prime Minister Ardern's her live address to the nation at 4pm she said that Zoom video conferencing has been cleared up to restricted level. This is completely at odds with industries understanding of Zoom, especially given its terms and conditions/privacy policy. Ignoring the title, this is laid out is "lay mans" terms in this article.
https://www.theregister.co.uk/2020/03/27...

Can you please provide all documents and/or correspondance that backs up the use of zoom for meetings? Also, all documents /correspondence that were related to the decision to use zoom.

Yours faithfully,

Hemant
