IP Addresses and Log File Data:
IP addresses are ID numbers for the location of your computer or network on the internet. Log files are recordings of the traffic to and from a server. Our servers log IP addresses for systems administration and troubleshooting. We track page hits in the aggregate to track the popularity of pages that people visit.
