Server visitor data
When you access a page on our website, the server logs and entry containing (1) your IP address, (2) the timestamp of your visit, (3) the URL you followed, (4) the website you came from, if any, and (5) a line of text identifying the type of browser used.
This information is publicly available to every server you connect to (through your browser, an app, a video game, etc.) and cannot be used to personally identify you.
We collect this information for maintenance purposes, such as identifying errors, broken URLs or missing files, and analytics tracking, such as average visitor and view counts, popular pages and frequent referrers.
Regarding IP address collection: In order for the server to know where to send your data, your IP address must be made available. Trying to browse the internet without sharing your IP address would be like asking Amazon to make deliveries without knowing your postal address.
