Technical information about the devices and operating systems and other software that you use in the course of visits to the website or the use of games, namely, information on the means to control access to information media (Media Access Control, MAC), device identifier (Unique Device Identifier, UDID), a similar device IDs, your IP-address and information about your browser, as well as the information needed to detect, investigate and prevent acts that violate the provisions of the Agreement or the game in respect of any of the games.

Of particular interest is the text alluding to means to investigate user agreement violations. Combined with the recent micropatch creating a specialized mods folder, it would seem WarGaming is stepping up a bit in an effort to detect an ban users of illegal mods.
