COOKIES AND IP ADDRESSES
We also collect, use, and monetize IP Addresses. An IP Address is a convention of the Internet Protocol that identifies your “virtual” address on the internet. It is not personal to you and does not identify any of your Personal Information. All devices connected to a network have an IP Address permitting communication to and from the device. If you connect to the Internet from your computer, then you have an IP Address that looks something like this: 209.17.654.152. In the simplest possible terms, your IP Address contains no data that identifies you individually. It is only a logical address allowing you to connect to others and others to locate your computer. We use an IP Address for several uses as summarized in this Policy, such as to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our Web site. We also use IP Addresses to help identify you and your shopping cart, and to gather broad demographic information.
