Other information, such as your Internet domain name or IP address, may potentially identify you depending on the naming standards followed by your Internet service provider. You may wish to ask them about their policies and practices in this regard. This information is not used to identify individuals who come to the site, nor is it regularly disclosed to other public bodies or individuals.
