On October 11, 2020, we updated the Oculus for Business Website Terms of Service to reflect that Facebook will become responsible for the Oculus for Business Website. We recommend that you review the updated Oculus for Business Website Terms of Service below.
Last Updated: October 11, 2020
Welcome to Oculus for Business!
Facebook builds technologies and services that enable people to connect with each other, build communities, and grow businesses. The Websites are provided to you by Facebook, Inc. and Facebook Ireland Limited (collectively, “Facebook,” “we,” “our,” “us”). These Terms govern your use of the Oculus for Business website located at https://business.oculus.com, and the other information, features, services, support, and software we offer on the website (the Oculus for Business Website or Website), except where we expressly state that separate terms (and not these) apply. These Terms specifically do not govern the sale of or your use of any Oculus headsets, software or accessories which are governed by separate terms.
We don’t charge you to use the Website or the other products and services covered by these Terms.
Our Data Policy explains how we collect and use your personal data to determine some of the ads you see and provide all of the other services described below.
1. THE SERVICES WE PROVIDE
Our mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. To help advance this mission, we provide the Website and services described below to you:
Provide a personalized experience for you:
We use the data we have - for example, about the connections you make, the choices and settings you select, and what you share and do on and off our Websites - to personalize your experience.
Connect you with the right Facebook products and services:
We help you find and connect with people, groups, businesses, organizations, and others that matter to you across the Facebook websites you use. We use the data we have to make suggestions for you and others with respect to products or services offered by Facebook.
Combat harmful conduct and protect and support our community:
We employ dedicated teams around the world and develop advanced technical systems to detect misuse of our Websites, harmful conduct towards others, and situations where we may be able to help support or protect our community. If we learn of content or conduct like this, we will take appropriate action - for example, offering help, removing content, removing or restricting access to certain features, disabling an account, or contacting law enforcement. We share data with other Facebook Companies when we detect misuse or harmful conduct by someone using one of our Websites.
Use and develop advanced technologies to provide safe and functional services for everyone:
We use and develop advanced technologies - such as artificial intelligence, machine learning systems, and augmented reality - so that people can use our Websites safely regardless of physical ability or geographic location. We also build sophisticated network and communication technology to help more people connect to the internet in areas with limited access. And we develop automated systems to improve our ability to detect and remove abusive and dangerous activity that may harm our community and the integrity of our Websites.
Research ways to make our services better:
We engage in research to develop, test, and improve our Websites. This includes analyzing the data we have about our users and understanding how people use our Websites, for example by conducting surveys and testing and troubleshooting new features. Our Data Policy explains how we use data to support this research for the purposes of developing and improving our services.
Enable global access to our services:
To operate our global service, we need to store and distribute content and data in our data centers and systems around the world, including outside your country of residence. This infrastructure may be operated or controlled by Facebook, Inc., Facebook Ireland Limited, or its affiliates.
2. YOUR COMMITMENTS TO FACEBOOK AND OUR COMMUNITY
We provide these services to you and others to help advance our mission. In exchange, we need you to make the following commitments:
Who can use the Oculus for Business Websites
When people stand behind their opinions and actions, our community is safer and more accountable. For this reason, you must not share your password, give access to your Oculus for Business Website account to others, or transfer your account to anyone else (without our permission).
We try to make the Oculus for Business Websites broadly available to everyone, but you cannot use the Oculus for Business Websites if:
What you can share and do on Oculus for Business Websites
You agree not to engage in the conduct described below (or to facilitate or support others in doing so):
You may not use our Websites to do or share anything:
You may not upload viruses or malicious code or do anything that could disable, overburden, or impair the proper working or appearance of our Websites.
You may not access or collect data from our Websites using automated means (without our prior permission) or attempt to access data you do not have permission to access.
We can remove or restrict access to content that is in violation of these provisions.
If we remove content that you have shared in violation of the Oculus Conduct in VR Policy (provided at https://support.oculus.com/1694069410806625) or Community Standards (also known as the Facebook Rules) (provided at https://www.facebook.com/communitystandards/), we’ll let you know and explain any options you have to request another review, unless you seriously or repeatedly violate these Terms or if doing so may expose us or others to legal liability; harm our community of users; compromise or interfere with the integrity or operation of any of our services, systems or Websites; where we are restricted due to technical limitations; or where we are prohibited from doing so for legal reasons.
To help support our community, we encourage you to report content or conduct that you believe violates your rights (including intellectual property rights) or our terms and policies by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The permissions you give us
We need certain permissions from you to provide our services:
Permission to use content you create and share: Some content that you share or upload, such as photos or videos, may be protected by intellectual property laws.
You own the intellectual property rights (things like copyright or trademarks) in any such content that you create and share on the Oculus for Business Websites. Nothing in these Terms takes away the rights you have to your own content. You are free to share your content with anyone else, wherever you want.
However, to provide our services we need you to give us some legal permissions (known as a ‘license’) to use this content. This is solely for the purposes of providing and improving our Websites and services as described in Section 1 above.
Specifically, when you share, post, or upload content that is covered by intellectual property rights on or in connection with our Websites, you grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, and worldwide license to host, use, distribute, modify, run, copy, publicly perform or display, translate, and create derivative works of your content. This means, for example, that if you share content on the Websites, you give us permission to store, copy, and share it with others (again, consistent with your settings) such as service providers that support our service or other Facebook websites you use. This license will end when your content is deleted from our systems.
You can delete content individually or all at once by deleting your account or by notifying us at email@example.com.
When you delete content, it’s no longer visible to other users, however it may continue to exist elsewhere on our systems where:
in which case, the content will be retained for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which it has been retained (the exact duration will vary on a case-by-case basis).
In each of the above cases, this license will continue until the content has been fully deleted.
Permission to use your name, profile picture, and information about your actions with ads and sponsored content: You give us permission to use your name and profile picture and information about actions you have taken on the Websites next to or in connection with ads, offers, and other sponsored content that we display across the Facebook websites, without any compensation to you. Ads like this can be seen only by people who have your permission to see the actions you've taken on Facebook.
Permission to update software you use or download: If you download or use our software, you give us permission to download and install updates to the software where available.
Limits on using our intellectual property
If you use content covered by intellectual property rights that we have and make available on our Websites, (we retain all rights to that content (but not yours). You can only use our copyrights or trademarks (or any similar marks) with our prior written permission. You must obtain our written permission (or permission under an open source license) to modify, create derivative works of, decompile, or otherwise attempt to extract source code from us.
3. ADDITIONAL PROVISIONS
Updating our Terms
We work constantly to improve our services and develop new features to make our Websites better for you and our community. As a result, we may need to update these Terms from time to time to accurately reflect our services and practices. Unless otherwise required by law, we will notify you before we make changes to these Terms and give you an opportunity to review them before they go into effect. Once any updated Terms are in effect, you will be bound by them if you continue to use our Websites.
We hope that you will continue using our Websites, but if you do not agree to our updated Terms and no longer want to be a part of the Oculus community, you can delete your information at any time by providing notice to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Account suspension or termination
If we determine that you have clearly, seriously or repeatedly breached our Terms or policies, we may suspend or permanently disable access to your account. We may also suspend or disable your account if you repeatedly infringe other people’s intellectual property rights or where we are required to do so for legal reasons.
Where we take such action we’ll let you know and explain any options you have to request a review, unless doing so may expose us or others to legal liability; harm our community of users; compromise or interfere with the integrity or operation of any of our services, systems or Websites; or where we are restricted due to technical limitations; or where we are prohibited from doing so for legal reasons.
If you delete or we disable your account, these Terms shall terminate as an agreement between you and us, but the following provisions will remain in place: 3.
Limits on liability
We work hard to provide the best Websites we can and to specify clear guidelines for everyone who uses them. Our Websites, however, are provided "as is," and we make no guarantees that they always will be safe, secure, or error-free, or that they will function without disruptions, delays, or imperfections. To the extent permitted by law, we also DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. We do not control or direct what people and others do or say, and we are not responsible for their actions or conduct (whether online or offline) or any content they share (including offensive, inappropriate, obscene, unlawful, and other objectionable content).
We cannot predict when issues might arise with our Websites. Accordingly, our liability shall be limited to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, and under no circumstance will we be liable to you for any lost profits, revenues, information, or data, or consequential, special, indirect, exemplary, punitive, or incidental damages arising out of or related to these Terms or the Oculus for Business Websites, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages. Our aggregate liability arising out of or relating to these Terms or the Oculus for Business Websites will not exceed the greater of $100 or the amount you have paid us in the past twelve months.
We try to provide clear rules so that we can limit or hopefully avoid disputes between you and us. If a dispute does arise, however, it's useful to know up front where it can be resolved and what laws will apply.
For any claim, cause of action, or dispute you have against us that arises out of or relates to these Terms or the Oculus for Business Websites ("Claim"), you agree that it will be resolved exclusively in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California or a state court located in San Mateo County. You also agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of either of these courts for the purpose of litigating any such claim, and that the laws of the State of California will govern these Terms and any Claim, without regard to conflict of law provisions.
