An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web. Web servers (the computers that present Web pages) automatically identify your computer by its IP address. The servers that host this website collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration and to audit the use of this site. As is typical, when visitors request pages. The servers log the visitor's IP address, referrer site and user-agent information. The servers do not normally link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that a user's session will be logged, but the user remains anonymous.
