IGT Devices App push notifications


Information from your mobile device is used for the purpose of sending push notifications from the IGT Devices App. A universally unique identifier (UUID) is a 128-bit number that identifies unique Internet objects or data. A UUID is generated by an algorithm with values that are based on a machine's network card MAC address combined with a unique value created when the App is installed.  It is considered as pseudonymized personal information as one cannot connect this number to an identifiable person. You may opt out from receiving push notifications by going to your device ‘Settings’ and clicking on ‘Notifications’ and then changing the settings for the App on your device.
