record Internet Protocol (IP) addresses of visitors. The IP address is a unique
number assigned to every computer on the Internet. Generally, an IP address
changes each time you connect to the Internet (it is a "dynamic"
address). Note, however, that if you have a broadband connection, depending on
your individual circumstance, the IP address that we collect may contain

broadband connections, your IP address doesn't change (it is
"static") and could be associated with your personal computer.
