Internet Protocol (IP) Addresses

An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are on the Internet. Web servers, the computers that "serve up" Web pages, automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When collecting information, The highest mountain does not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. This means that a user's session will be logged, but the user remains anonymous. The highest mountain may use IP addresses to audit the use of our site. IP addresses can and will be used to IP identify a user when necessary for security purposes.
