7. Use of IP addresses
When your web browser or e-mail application requests a web page or e-mail from another computer on the Internet, it automatically gives that computer the address where it should send the information. This is called your computer’s “IP address.” (IP stands for “Internet protocol.”) For most users accessing the Internet from a dial-up Internet service provider (I6P), the IP address will be different every time you log on. We do not store IP addresses in a central database. They are just recorded in log files so they are not associated with an account.
IP addresses may be used for various purposes, including to:
- To identify a person’s country access.
- To assist our third party service provider to manage GEO IP location, who may map IP addresses to countries.
- Diagnose service or technology problems reported by our users or engineers that are associated with the IP addresses controlled by a specific web company or ISP.
- Send the most appropriate advertising based on geographic area or information derived from your IP address. Many IP addresses are commonly associated with Internet service providers, universities, or major corporations in specific regions or localities. Aggregate information derived from IP addresses may also be reported to advertisers.
- Estimate the total number of users visiting our websites from specific countries or regions of the world.
- Assist third party advertisers to track effectiveness of the promotions they run on our website, visits to and business at third party’s websites.
- Help determine which users have access privileges to certain content that we host.
- Identify whether the IP address relates to a human or non-human (“bot” or “web crawler”) as part of a an advertisement verification solution to allow us to monitor our digital advertisements across brand safety, ad fraud and view ability
