Glossary of Terms
When you are connected to the Internet, your computer has a unique Internet ID called an IP address. Most people that connect through a dial-up service get a different IP address each time they login. Others might have a permanently assigned IP address, called a static IP address. It is difficult or impossible for a website to collect personal information about you (i.e., your name, email address, etc.) from your IP address alone, though a static IP address makes this easier.
