We see that servers have access to our IP addresses and other information.That information can be used to estimate our location – to geo-locate us – at a given time.To see how that works, we will take a quick look at Internet communication technology – data packets, URLs and IP addresses.We will look at ways to maintain anonymity if desired, and conclude by considering the aggregation of data that we and our friends release voluntarily.
