What this Policy Covers
This policy applies to information that Magic Leap collects across all of our augmented reality products and services, and when you otherwise interact with us. An overview of our products and services, including how to find even more detailed information for each generation of such products and services, is available below.
Within this policy, we cover the following topics:
- Our Products and Services
- Information We Collect
- How We Use Information
- How We Share Information
- Your Choices
- Your Rights
- Other Important Details
- Location-Specific Notices
- Contact Us
Please note that this policy only applies to Magic Leap. When you use third party products and services that are designed for use with our products, such as third party applications and solutions available for your Magic Leap device of any generation, what information is collected and how it is used by that third party is not controlled by Magic Leap. Be sure to review the privacy practices of these third parties prior to using their products or services with Magic Leap products to better understand how those third parties collect, use, or share your information.
Further, if you are using a Magic Leap product or service managed by an enterprise (e.g., your employer), then the enterprise, and not Magic Leap, determines what information it collects regarding your use of such Magic Leap products or services, as well as how any such information will be used or shared by such enterprise. Be sure to review the enterprise’s policies to better understand how the enterprise handles your information.
Our Products and Services
Magic Leap 1 (including Magic Leap One: Creator Edition) is our first generation wearable computer that provides access to a connected augmented reality ecosystem. The Magic Leap 1 ecosystem includes the Magic Leap 1 device, LuminOS, our first-party applications, our application store (Magic Leap World), and a variety of connected services such as our Magic Leap ID, Magicverse and Device Manager offerings.
Magic Leap 2 is our next generation immersive AR headset designed for enterprise that runs an operating system software based on Android Open Source Project (AOSP) . Magic Leap 2 is a standalone spatial computer (along with available products and accessories) that enables a user to build and run immersive AR experiences. Magic Leap 2 devices may include certain technical features that enable you (or the enterprise managing the devices) to collect data from such Magic Leap 2 devices. You, or the managing enterprise, may elect to share certain data with Magic Leap for limited purposes (like to check for software updates, receive customer support services, or monitor license key compliance), however, Magic Leap 2 devices are not designed to offer a consumer-focused ecosystem like Magic Leap 1.
Each generation of our products and services also include software development kits (SDKs) and similar software tools to enable third party developers to create applications and solutions for our devices. We also operate websites to share documentation, learning resources and other materials to support our products, such as magicleap.com and our developer portals. Additional details regarding collection of data via generation-specific solutions, such as use of a Magic Leap ID account to log in to our first generation developer portal, are available via the Learn More articles for that specific generation.
Learn More: Magic Leap provides additional documentation specific to each generation of our products and services. Please visit our Privacy Hub and review the “Learn Mores” and additional policies specific to the generation of products and services relevant to you, including the choices you may have regarding Magic Leap’s collection and use of your data.

As part of these audience ad programs, we upload a list of email addresses to a third-party platform so that we can display interest-based ads within that platform to specific groups of users. If you opt out of receiving promotional emails from Magic Leap, Magic Leap will also cease using your email address for the purpose of tailored audience ads.
