The content purchased in the Oculus Store is intended for consumer use.

Note that there is no Oculus Store available on the Oculus for Business enterprise software.
You may purchase devices and use them in your own business or for a demo. However, the Enterprise Use Agreement does not permit leasing products to third parties unless you have your personnel present at all times to administer and supervise the third party’s use of your devices. Such supervised rentals are subjected to the additional terms in the Headset Extended Community License at http://business.oculus.com/legal/headset-extended-community-license/. For a detailed discussion of supervised rental rights and restrictions, see here.
Co-location is when two devices in the same vicinity track each other within the software. The tracking functionality of the Oculus software does not support co-location, and you may not modify the tracking functionality for custom co-location or otherwise.
Keeping people safe in virtual reality is our top priority. Oculus has provided comprehensive warnings about our products since they were launched, and this now includes Oculus Quest. The warnings advise that our VR products should not be used by children under the age of 13 because online safety experts have landed on 13 as a marker for social online activity generally. We will continue to look at how people use Oculus and how the product develops in making decisions about our product policies.
You may not bypass or override the Oculus Device Manager Mobile Application, web application, or platform services. This includes creating a custom application launcher in kiosk mode that gives users access to multiple applications without returning to the Oculus homepage or creating proprietary interfaces, application programming interfaces, or a third-party application store or marketplace. The only exception to this restriction is that up to 10 of your devices may be in developer mode at any time, which may allow you to bypass certain Oculus platform services if used in accordance with the applicable requirements of developer mode.
Mass provisioning is only available for devices that are running the Oculus for Business enterprise software.
If you have an Oculus for Business Oculus Quest device running enterprise software, then your Oculus for Business admin will need a Workplace account subject to the terms at https://www.facebook.com/legal/FB_Work_EnterpriseAgreement.
Corporate VR solutions must have a strong security foundation. That’s why we built the Oculus for Business enterprise software solution on the world-class security infrastructure and privacy practices of Workplace by Facebook. This includes strong data center security, 24/7 threat monitoring, layers of encryption, and advanced technologies like machine learning. We’ve also adopted Workplace policies for giving organizations control and ownership of their VR application data. Your Oculus for Business admin will need a Workplace account to administer your Oculus for Business enterprise software solution.
It depends. The enterprise software runs on the premium version of Workplace. If you have the free version, we will upgrade you, at no cost, to the premium version. If you already have the premium version, then you will need to have your company’s Workplace admin turn on permissions for your Oculus for Business admin.
No, you will only need accounts for your admins, but not for each headset. The Oculus for Business admin may be a different person from your Workplace admin.
