1. The Oculus Rift is always on, and it’s watching and collecting your data.
2. The Oculus Rift wants to share your data with their Facebook ‘family’.
3. The Oculus Rift wants to own your creative content.
Anything creative that’s made with the device automatically belongs to Oculus Rift, or at least partially according to the Terms of Service’s User Content section.
Though the Rift does “not claim any ownership rights in or to your User Content” unless otherwise specified, they do have written rights to be able to “use, copy, display, store, adapt, publicly perform and distribute such User Content in connection with the Services.” By signing the Terms of Service when you use the device, you also grant the company full permission to sublicense this ability to anyone of their choosing.
