Hand Tracking Privacy Notice
Hand Tracking is a feature for Meta Quest devices that allows you to use your hands in place of your touch controllers to navigate select applications and websites on Meta Quest devices. You have the choice to turn this feature on in Settings in VR.
To enable this feature, navigate to the Settings tab in VR, select Device, and toggle the Hand Tracking feature to enable it. You can disable hand tracking at any time by toggling the feature off in Settings.
When hand tracking is enabled, our software analyzes images of your hands from the sensors on your headset to estimate the location of certain key points on your hands, such as your knuckles or fingertips. This analysis is done on your device in real time as your hands are moving. The images and estimated points specific to your hands are deleted after processing, and are not stored on our servers. The software then fits a generic hand model over the estimated points of your hands, resulting in hand pose data which is not specific to you (including approximate position, orientation and finger configuration) and an estimated hand size (represented by standardized numerical values such as between 0.5 and 1.5). To ensure that you have a consistent experience, we store recently generated hand pose data and estimated hand size on your device.
When you enable hand tracking and visit a third party website that supports hand tracking features, your hand pose data and your estimated hand size may be shared with the website to improve your experience. You will receive a notice when you visit a website that requests access to hand pose data, and you can decline the request. We do not control how third party websites use, store, or share your hand tracking data once it is shared, so you should only allow access to this data by websites that you trust.
