In regards to the current privacy fears circling around Facebook, Oculus made a blog post to accompany the changes addressing obvious questions. The company assured that it doesn't feed Facebook user data that would be used by third parties to target advertisements based on an individual's behavior on the Oculus platform. The information shared with the social media giant is "limited" -- for example, if someone is flagged on one service, that will transfer over to the other. But users could be sharing even more info if they link accounts on both platforms.
The 'My Privacy Center' feature will go live on May 20th and give users a look at the data Oculus has collected on them. They won't be able to see any information that's been anonymized, including the movements made while in VR, which previously got the company in hot water with then-Senator Al Franken. The privacy center also won't show data stored locally on an Oculus device, like height, or sensitive stuff like credit card info.
The code of conduct, which will soon be moved to the Terms of Service to increase its visibility, already prohibits users from using or hawking sexually explicit content. Like Facebook's code, it also bans content that is "hateful or racially offensive" or that "attacks people based on race, ethnicity, nationality, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, sex, gender, gender identity, diseases or disability." Users also cannot harass others or encourage illegal activity or real-world violence.
If a user deletes their account, they should expect it to be gone within 90 days. That won't wipe every trace from the company's servers, as Oculus will still hold on to pieces like certain purchase information, which is retained for tax and financial purposes.
