What information are we collecting and how are we collecting it?
Every device connected to the Internet is given a set of numbers that serve as that device’s “Internet Protocol” address also known as its IP address. In cases where visitors access the Internet behind a router performing network address translation (NAT), the IP address is given to the router and not to the computer. When a visitor requests a page from within our site, our web servers automatically recognize that visitor’s IP address. The IP address reveals nothing personal about you other than the IP address from where you have accessed our site. We use this information to examine our traffic in aggregate and to investigate misuse of our site, its users, or to co-operate with law enforcement. We do not collect and evaluate this information for specific individuals.
