Native Touch: How To Opt Out

Native Touch is committed to protecting consumer privacy and to clearly informing users about the collection and use of information when using our services. As a result, we have put together our Privacy Policy to explain how we collect and use certain information as well as the choices available to you.

What is an advertising ID

Advertising IDs are anonymous, resettable, suppressible identifiers that allow for personalized advertising on devices. Advertising IDs were developed to give users better controls and provide developers with a simple, standard system to continue to monetize their apps. It enables users to reset their identifier or opt out of personalized ads (formerly known as interest-based ads).

How you can opt out

Mobile device users who do not want to receive interest based advertising from Native Touch may opt-out in several ways:

1) Use the AppChoices app

Our recommended method is to download the AppChoices app from: https://youradchoices.ca/en/tools.

AppChoices is a mobile-based tool for opting out of interest-based advertising across apps. AppChoices does not stop ads from being shown on your device. It stops the interest-based ad targeting that happens in the background from the companies listed.

2) Providing your Advertising ID

By providing a device Advertising ID to Native Touch, Native Touch removes the device from receiving advertising that is advertising that is interest-based targeting.

For Android:
To find your Android Advertising Identifier, simply open the Google Settings app on your Android device and click on “Ads.”  Your Advertising Identifier will be listed at the bottom of the screen.

For iOS:
To find your device’s IDFA value download an app called The Identifiers (The Identifiers).  After launching the app, you can find your device’s IDFA listed in the middle of the screen.
Once you retrieve your Advertising ID for your respective device, enter it below in the appropriate field.

Please note that there will be a lag for an advertising ID to be removed from Native Touch’s previously distributed targeting segments that are already active at the time when the opt-out is exercised and opting-out will not block general advertisements that are sent at random, and not tied to the perceived interest of the user of a particular device.

To stop all tracking immediately (i.e. from Native Touch or any other entity) mobile device users can turn on ‘Limit Ad Tracking’ in their device settings on iOS devices or turn off ‘Ads Personalization’ on Android devices.
