What is Sofa VR?

A platform for VR developers and arcades enabling smartphone users to engage immersed players in live social gameplay.

Why is it awesome?

Consumers are able to play, spectate, & share social VR experiences with friends without multiple VR goggles.

How do I monetize?

Our freemium app connects VR arcades and game devs to virtual goods, branded content, spectator, and social media revenue streams from both mobile and VR players.

SofaVR believes that there is more to the VR experience than being in the headset. Engage players with AR virtual goods, VR tutorials, and relevant push notifications prior to the VR game -- then, with augmented snaps and social media sharing after the VR game.

California Online Privacy Protection Act
CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy.

We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old.

Fair Information Practices
The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.

In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:
We will notify you via email

We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle which requires that individuals have the right to legally pursue enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.

CAN SPAM Act
The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.

We collect your email address in order to:
