IP stands for “Internet Protocol.” Your IP address is essentially a unique number or address assigned to a computer, device or technology present on a network. An IP address is used in order to identify each unique device on a network. IP addresses of your computer and other devices are provided and used each and every time you connect to the Internet.

Data and information provided from and pertaining to IP addresses also allows us to improve site performance. For example, it assists us with routing data and information to visitors along the best optimized and most reliable network paths.
