Your IP Address

One bit of information that we need is your "IP address," a unique number that is used by computers on the internet to identify your computer so that web pages and graphics can be sent to you. IP addresses are usually dynamic, meaning you're assigned a different one by your Internet Service provider (ISP) each time you connect to the internet. That number lets us know some generic things about our site, such as with what parts of the world are popular. Also, if we ever have a problem with our computers (rare, but it happens), IP addresses can help us diagnose and fix it. Your IP address does not contain anything that can identify you personally.
