How does Oculus Move estimate the number of calories burned?
Calories burned are estimated through an algorithm that considers your basal metabolic rate (BMR) and your headset and controller movements. BMR depends on your age, weight, height and sex. You can choose to provide your age, weight, height and sex or rely on averages instead.
We use the birth date from your Facebook profile to calculate your age, unless you choose to skip using your age as part of the Oculus Move calorie estimate.
Please note that the calorie counts provided in Oculus Move are estimates only. Calorie counts in Oculus Move should be used for informational purposes only and should not be relied upon for medical or other purposes.

Oculus Move information storage
Personal information
Any weight, height or sex information that you provide will be stored locally on your headset and not shared with Facebook. Information stored locally on your headset, such as weight, height and sex is not used to inform the ads you see on Facebook.
Stats
Your Oculus Move stats, including your total calories burned over time, are stored locally on your headset and are not shared with Facebook. If you clear your Oculus Move stats or factory reset your headset, this information will be deleted permanently. If you resume using Oculus Move after doing so, you will no longer have access to your previous Oculus Move stats.
Goals
If you set and meet any Oculus Move goals, Oculus collects and aggregates this information to improve Oculus Move and measure whether it’s helping people achieve their fitness goals. For example: If you achieve any of your calorie, move minutes or weekly goals, Oculus would collect and aggregate that a person achieved that goal.

Providing personal information to use Oculus Move
Providing personal information when you use Oculus Move is optional. According to standard measurements in the health/fitness industry, age, weight, height and sex are variables that impact the rate at which you burn calories, so if you provide this information, your calorie estimate will be better. If you are uncomfortable with sharing any of this information, or do not identify with a sex, you can choose to skip providing any of these variables, and in that case, an average will be used instead. Certain information you provide in Oculus Move, such as height, weight, and sex, is stored on your device and will only be used to predict calories burned.

Do you use Oculus movement data for ads?
We do not currently use movement data for ads. We collect only the necessary movement and environment data required to deliver an immersive VR experience that is safe, comfortable, and seamless across apps. Once this limited data is processed, it's de-identified in our systems and not associated with your account, so it cannot be used to target personalized ads or content.
Examples of movement data include: the position of your headset, the speed of your controller movement, and changes in your orientation, like when you move your head to watch a 360 degree video or duck while playing a game.
