Logging. Primary communication that happens between the
client and the server is known as logging. Logging informs the server of
various pieces of information so that services can be improved. Logging
includes such details as: connection time, Internet protocol (IP)
address, client version, client identification (ID), date, protocol, and

client ID, both of which are used by the server to identify your
computer. The client IP is necessary in order to establish the
connection to the server and is known by the server when you connect to
the Internet Web site. Your client IP is known the minute you connect to
the Internet Web site. The client ID is constructed from a Globally
Unique Identifier (GUID). When logging on to the server, this client ID
is used to uniquely identify your connection. This ID does not contain
any Personally Identifiable Information. If you choose to send us an
e-mail through our website and you specify a return receipt, your return
receipt will be computer generated, not manually created by the receiver
