Log Files and IP Addresses
An IP address is a number automatically assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet. All computer identification on the Internet is conducted with IP addresses, which allow computers and servers to recognize and communicate with each other. stlcosmeticsurgery.com collects IP addresses in order to conduct system administration, evaluate aggregate such as total traffic to the site, and conduct site analysis.
If a visitor requests (clicks on links to) pages within St. Louis Cosmetic Surgery, the stlcosmeticsurgery.com servers enter the visitor's IP address into a log. To maintain visitor anonymity, St. Louis Cosmetic Surgery does not associate IP addresses with records containing personal information. However, we do use IP addresses to identify any visitors who refuse to comply with our in-house rules or terms of service, and to identify visitors who threaten our service, site, customers or others.
