An IP address is a number that's automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web. Web servers automatically identify where to send the information your computer requests by your computer's IP address. Most IP addresses do not specifically identify an individual computer because most computers' IP addresses change each time a computer logs onto the Web, although certain users may have static IP addresses that remain constant each time the computer logs onto the Web. Digital Chicago does not identify you personally or associate your IP address with any PII. When you request pages from this Web Site, our servers log your IP address. Digital Chicago may use IP addresses for a number of purposes, such as system administration, to report aggregate information to our business partners or to audit the use of the Web Site.

Web Beacons. A Web beacon, which is sometimes also called a Web bug or
"clear gif", is a small graphic image in a Web page, a
Web-based document or an e-mail message, which generally allows the
party that set the Web beacon to monitor certain information about the
viewer of the Web page, Web-based document or e-mail message, and it may
allow access to certain cookies. Web beacons are usually invisible to
the user, because they are very small (generally 1-by-1 pixel). However,
in general, any electronic image viewed as part of a Web page, including
an advertisement, can act as a Web beacon. Web beacons typically collect
the URL of the page the Web beacon comes from, the type of browser
requesting the Web beacon, the IP address of the computer that the Web
beacon is sent to and the time the Web beacon was viewed. Web beacons
can also be linked to PII. Ideas-96.com may use Web beacons for a number
of purposes, such as to count visitors to our Web pages or to monitor
