Does Zoom need to be considered as a processor

If personal data is visible during a Zoom call (e.g. a screen is shared with personal data on the screen or personal data is mentioned verbally) however personal data is not copied and pasted as textual data in Zoom nor is the Zoom call recorded, does Zoom need to be considered as a processor?

Whenever a call on Zoom is initiated, Zoom Video Communications, Inc. processes personal data. Mp4 of all video, audio, whiteboard, captions and presentations, audio transcript files, attendee information (screen name, join/leave time), etc, they are all personal data according to the definition of personal data that can be found in Article 4 (1) GDPR: “any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person”. Zoom Video Communications, Inc. processes personal data on behalf of its customers and acts as a Data Processor according to the definition from Article 4 (8). Since Zoom Video Communications, Inc is a US-based company, the new EU Standard Contractual Clauses should be signed. Zoom Video Communications, Inc, offers a Data Processing Agreement which also includes EU Standard Contractual Clauses requirements, at https://explore.zoom.us/docs/doc/Zoom_GLOBAL_DPA.pdf
