Meta information collection
Here are some examples of information we collect from you: The name, email address, and phone number you provide us; the people, content, and experiences you connect to and interact with; and the hardware you’re using.
When stored, this information is tied to your account ID since it helps tailor your individual experience and enables services like multiplayer experiences, the Meta Quest Store, and customer support.
We collect some movement information that we need to make VR apps work. This information is necessary to deliver an immersive and realistic VR experience.
Here are some examples of movement information we collect from you: The position of your headset, the speed of your controller movement and changes in your orientation like when you move your head to watch a 360 degree video or duck while playing a game.
We take precautions with the limited movement information we collect. Once this data is used to make your device work, it is stored in our systems tied to a unique identifier that is different from your account ID.
HAND TRACKING DATA:
If you enable hand tracking, we collect information like your estimated hand size, the location of your hands, and interactions with the feature - like the number of pinches you make. You can read our hand tracking privacy notice here.
RAW IMAGE DATA:
The sensors on Meta Quest and Rift S also process raw images of your surroundings and enable the headset to both process your movement as well as help orient you in relation to your designated VR areas. To ensure people’s privacy, raw images are overwritten instantaneously.
Additionally, when you’re using your device, a white LED light turns on to signal to others that the sensors are active. And the device goes to sleep shortly after you take it off your head, to make sure the sensors are only active when the device is in use.
