IP addresses are used to uniquely identify computers that are connected to a network. All computers that use the internet will have an IP Address. IP Addresses are not able to locate you or gain any personal information about you. They are used purely for statistical purposes, as they allow us to determine how many people visit the site, what pages on the site people visit most often, and how long they spend on a page.
