Your “IP Address” is a number that is automatically assigned to the computer that you are using by your Internet Service Provider (ISP).

How We Collect IP Addresses

An IP Address is identified and logged automatically in Tilsatec server log files whenever a user visits the website, along with the time of the visit and the page(s) that were visited. Collecting IP Addresses is standard practice on the Internet and is done automatically by many websites.
