Other people: We also collect content and information that other people provide when they use the Oculus Products. This can include information about you, like when they send us an abuse report that refers to or contains video of you.

We also collect information about your environment, physical movements, and dimensions when you use an XR device.

We also receive information through device settings you choose, such as your photos or audio content.
Interactions:We collect information about the features you interact with on our Oculus Products.
