In exchange for free access to ZoomInfo, Community Edition users agree to share their business contacts to help ZoomInfo keep our platform updated. And in turn, we continuously keep their address book up-to-date with verified business information.
Once a community user agrees to the terms of service, authenticates themselves, and creates an account, they install our local application that connects to their email service provider.
Our application then identifies business contact information that is used to validate existing or add new records to the ZoomInfo platform. The information we collect is what is customarily found on a business card and includes name, company job title, business phone, and email address.
Before being added to ZoomInfo, every professional receives a notification with instructions on how to claim, manage, update, or remove their profile.
Our algorithms and processes are designed to collect business contact information. We do not process or capture any additional content from emails sent to or received by our Community Edition users.
The type of business contact information we collect is what you would customarily find on a business card. In today's digital world this information now lives in email signatures and email contact books. And 99% of the information we collect from our Community Edition users simply acts as part of our system of checks and balances; confirming information that already exists on professional profiles in ZoomInfo.
