The IP address is used by ŁAC to diagnose technical problems with the server, to generate statistical analyses (e.g. determination of regions with the highest number of visits), as information useful for administration and improvement of the Website, as well as for security purposes and possible identification of unwanted automatic programmes for browsing the Website which increase the server load.
