  3.What is an IP Address

The IP address is a number (a series of digits separated by dots) that is assigned to your device each time you connect to the Internet. This number varies depending on the network you are using to access the Internet (home network, business network – at your office, public network – at the cafe, at the airport). The IP address allows devices and Internet servers to recognise and communicate with each other. Without being linked to any additional information about you, the IP address cannot identify you as an individual on its own. It just allows us to maintain communication with your Device while you are browsing our Website.
