It is a necessary part of visiting any website that the user's web browser provides the machine's identity (its IP address) to the web server so that the server can address the reply to the correct machine. In addition, the browser type and operating system are provided.

Navigation and ClickStream Data

Browsing any website generates a trail of pages visited and the time spent displaying each page, which is useful in the continual evaluation of the site. In the unlikely event of an investigation, a law enforcement agency may exercise a warrant to inspect the service provider's logs. This does not identify individual users.
