Illinois law (720 Ill. Compiled Stat. 5/14-2) requires that individuals be made aware, and have the opportunity to decline, being recorded. Zoom’s Recording Disclaimer feature will prompt participants to agree to be recorded, or gives them the option to leave the meeting. Zoom will also ask the host to confirm before starting a recording. These settings will be required - hosts will not be able to disable this. Those participants who are only connected via phone will receive multiple audio notifications of recording starting, stopping, or resuming.
With the rapid increase in the utilization of Zoom since it was first made available at UIC in March, there is a need to manage the storage space available for cloud recordings.

To review your existing cloud recordings, please review How do I locate and share Zoom cloud recordings?
In your recordings list, you will see the number of days until automatic deletion, as shown here:
