IP address & Other Statistical Information
In order to use the internet all web browsers transmit their IP address to servers who then send data back. An IP address is necessary for the functioning of the web and is similar to a telephone number - it lets the server know where to send the data back to (i.e. your browser). Most consumers have IP addresses which change every few days (a dynamic IP address) while companies and those who specifically request it have IP address that stay the same (a static IP address). The Platform logs all IP addresses of visitors for a variety of reasons including the protection of system security and stability, fraud prevention and detection, statistic generation, planning, usage tracking, providing approximate geolocation of site-visitors, and other purposes.

The Platform also tracks other information where possible including the visitor’s display resolution, operating system and browser version. This information is used to develop statistics that enable us to understand usage patterns which can be used to improve the Platform.
