Privacy concerns - can telemetry be disabled (EU)?

1. I've read that
"the Oculus virtual reality platform ... collects incredibly
detailed information ... VR headsets have a clear potential for
surveillance and data harvesting, and Facebook has a bad track
record" (www.theverge.com). I'm annoyed about being
surreptitiously monitored by Oculus (and possibly Facebook) just
because I want to use a VR headset. Does anybody know which domains
and IPs I'd have to block in the router's firewall to eliminate that
telemetry?

2. Is there a decent
third-party browser for the Go? It don't want to use the built-in
browser. I'm wary of a browser connected to Facebook. Also, the
browser isn't that great. It can not open links in new tabs (by
long-pressing them), it has no cut and paste (between page and url,
for example), it offers only a few fixed window sizes, no turning off
of Javascript and so on. I tried Firefox Reality and it looks pretty
- but it seems o need a lot of work. I can not even find a way to
download files with it. Either I'm too dumb or they have released the
first browser for the Internet that can not download stuff of the
Internet.
