The IP address is dynamic, non-static and is not unique to a particular computer but changes each time you connect to the net and so the information is non-personal. However, your IP address may be used to diagnose any problems in our server, report aggregate information, to determine the fastest route for your computer to connect to our site, and to administer and improve our website.
