Zoom Retention Policy

As mentioned in the President/CEO Message - June 17, 2021, Zoom is a free online conferencing service available to all Compton College employees through the California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office agreement. By nature, Zoom cloud storage is intended for temporary, non-archival storage and provides access to recordings for the immediate or active academic term. Meeting hosts are expected to assess their recordings on a routine basis. If long-term storage is deemed necessary, they should download and transfer their cloud recordings to other college-approved long-term archival storage solutions, such as their Microsoft OneDrive account.

To proactively manage both instructional and non-instructional Zoom cloud recordings, our Information Technology Services (ITS) Department has issued the following policy statement:

On Wednesday, September 1, 2021, Compton College will apply a six-month retention policy to all Zoom cloud recordings.

  • All Zoom recordings will be retained for 180 days.
  • After 180 days, recordings will be placed in the meeting host's Trash for an additional 15 days.
  • Once the 15-day Trash countdown expires, the recordings will be permanently deleted.

This retention policy only applies to Zoom meeting cloud recordings hosted on https://compton-edu.zoom.us. The Compton College ITS Department will remind all employees one week before each retention policy is activated.
