Zoom Video Communications Inc said on Thursday it did not provide any user information or meeting content to the Chinese government.

The company's statement came after it temporarily shut the account belonging to a group of US-based Chinese activists that had held an event to commemorate the 31st anniversary of China's Tiananmen Square crackdown.
