HOW DO THE FACEBOOK COMPANIES WORK TOGETHER?
The Oculus for Business Websites share infrastructure, systems and technology with other Facebook Products and Facebook Companies (which include WhatsApp and Instagram) to provide an innovative, relevant, consistent and safe experience across all Facebook Products and Facebook Company Products you use. We also process information about you across the Facebook Companies for these purposes, as permitted by applicable law and in accordance with their terms and policies. For example, we process information from WhatsApp about accounts sending spam on its service so we can take appropriate action against those accounts on Facebook, Instagram or Messenger. We also work to understand how people use and interact with Facebook Products and Facebook Company Products, such as understanding the number of unique users on different Facebook Products and Facebook Company Products.
HOW CAN I MANAGE OR DELETE INFORMATION ABOUT ME?
We provide you with the ability to access, rectify, port and erase your data. Please send us an inquiry to email@example.com if you wish to learn more.
We store data until it is no longer necessary to provide our services and Oculus for Business Websites, or until your account is deleted - whichever comes first. This is a case-by-case determination that depends on things like the nature of the data, why it is collected and processed, and relevant legal or operational retention needs.
When you delete your account, we delete things you have posted and you won't be able to recover that information later. Information that others have shared about you isn't part of your account and won't be deleted. If you don't want to delete your account but want to temporarily stop using the Websites, you can deactivate your account instead. To delete your account at any time, please send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
HOW DO WE RESPOND TO LEGAL REQUESTS OR PREVENT HARM?
We access, preserve and share your information with regulators, law enforcement or others:
In response to a legal request (like a search warrant, court order or subpoena) if we have a good faith belief that the law requires us to do so. This may include responding to legal requests from jurisdictions outside of the United States when we have a good-faith belief that the response is required by law in that jurisdiction, affects users in that jurisdiction, and is consistent with internationally recognized standards.
When we have a good-faith belief it is necessary to: detect, prevent and address fraud, unauthorized use of the Websites, violations of our terms or policies, or other harmful or illegal activity; to protect ourselves (including our rights, property, products or Websites), you or others, including as part of investigations or regulatory inquiries; or to prevent death or imminent bodily harm. For example, if relevant, we provide information to and receive information from third-party partners about the reliability of your account to prevent fraud, abuse and other harmful activity on and off our Websites.
Information we receive about you can be accessed and preserved for an extended period when it is the subject of a legal request or obligation, governmental investigation, or investigations of possible violations of our terms or policies, or otherwise to prevent harm. We also retain information from accounts disabled for terms violations for at least a year to prevent repeat abuse or other term violations.
HOW DO WE OPERATE AND TRANSFER DATA AS PART OF OUR GLOBAL SERVICES?
We share information globally, both internally within Facebook and the Facebook Companies, and externally with our partners and with those you connect and share with around the world in accordance with this policy. Your information may, for example, be transferred or transmitted to, or stored and processed in the United States or other countries outside of where you live for the purposes as described in this policy. These data transfers are necessary to provide the services set forth in the Oculus Terms of Service and to globally operate and provide our Websites to you. We utilize standard contract clauses, rely on the European Commission's adequacy decisions about certain countries, as applicable, and obtain your consent for these data transfers to the United States and other countries.
HOW WILL WE NOTIFY YOU OF CHANGES TO THIS POLICY?
We'll notify you before we make changes to this policy and give you the opportunity to review the revised policy before you choose to continue using our Websites.
