The internet works in such a way that it’s able to collect data from you. Soon as you are connected online, data collection happens automatically. That’s the way the internet works. No matter how much you conceal yourself by creating email addresses with fictitious names, the internet can still track you down. You can say that your online presence is pretty much captured and recorded.
Kinds Of Data Gathered
Automatically, my website is able to gather IP addresses. No computer or gadget can connect online without an IP address. Each and every computer and techie gadget have their own IP address.
An IP address is a significant piece of information because it’s able to link all the online activities to a single computer or gadget. If an IP address is looked into, it can actually reveal a lot about the computer user. In some cases where cyber bullying exists, IP addresses are the first pieces of evidences to be looked into. A visitor can be identified by an IP address. That’s how sensitive this piece of information is.
My website is also able to gather names and emails addresses. These are sensitive data you need to share with my website if you want to send me a comment or a message.
