Web servers can automatically detect the IP address and domain name used by users.
An IP address is a number automatically assigned to a computer when it connects to the Internet. This information enables the subsequent processing of data to obtain statistical measures which give the number of visits to a given website, order of visits, access point, etc.
Protection of your ip address
We implemented a tool to anonymise the IP addresses we collect and send to a third-party service for statistics.
