18.2 Whenever a Buyer uses the Seller’s website, or any other website, the computer on which the web pages are stored (the Web server) needs to know the network address of the Buyer’s computer so that it can send the requested web pages to the Buyer’s Internet browser. The unique network address of the Buyer’s computer is called its "IP address," and is sent automatically each time the Buyer’s accesses any Internet site. From a computer's IP address, it is possible to determine the general geographic location of that computer, but otherwise it is anonymous.
18.3 The Seller does not keep a record of the IP addresses from which users access its site except where a user has specifically provided the Seller with information about itself, in which case the Seller will also record the user’s IP address for security purposes. An example of this would be when proceeding to a checkout to finalise an order a Buyer may wish to make. After completing the form provided, the Buyer’s IP address will be stored along with a transaction number that allows the Seller to track the Buyer’s order.
