Who owns it? Who owns the rights to it?
Google Owns the virtual tour. You own the POI photos and the rights to use the tour and POI photos for marketing, advertising, and any other uses you see fit. Virtual360 retains the right to use the tour and photos for promotional purposes.
Where does it show up?
The virtual tour and POI photos are hosted on Google Maps. They are linked and displayed on your Google+ Local business page, and they show up in the Knowledge Graph in Google Search.
What if there are people present when the tour is photographed?
Google doesn't allow any recognizable faces in GMBV, so anyone present will have their face blurred for anonymity.

Does it affect my Search Engine Ranking?
How do I know if it's bringing in business? How can I track the ROI?
You can track it through increased traffic on your Google+ Local page. You can track it through increased traffic from Google Search to your website. By embedding it on your website you can track it through page views and retention. By sharing it on social media you can track it through the response of your followers.
