There is a trade-off between two cardinal ideas: access and privacy. What is the value of each, when by definition you must give up some of one to get the other? At Grain, we believe that only participants IN the meeting should have initial access to the recording of it and that these participants should choose which parts of the content are shared and with whom.
At Grain, our job is to make it easy for you to share just the right parts with just the right audience. Have a question or need help? Shoot us an email.
We ensure the privacy of every call participant above all else. Prioritizing your privacy is a core value that has influenced everything we’ve made since day one.
We don't believe in surveillance culture and turn auto-sharing off by default. Privacy is baked into our product development process and we rigorously evaluate the design of every new feature for any inadvertent "exposure risk" before releasing it.
Norms around recording are changing, but the ethics of recording remain the same. Every call recorded with Grain includes a personalized recording disclaimer to put your participants at ease.
Because Grain works in parallel with Zoom's cloud and local recording, you can leverage Zoom's native recording disclosures and attendee consent reporting.
Your video call data is what makes Grain work. But we are firmly against surveillance practices that suggest you need to track everything in order to create something great. So we only capture the data we need and are thoughtful about how we use it.
