For instance, we may use your IP address in cooperation with your Internet provider, to attempt to identify you if it is necessary to contact you or to bring legal action against you should you violate our Terms & Conditions, be causing injury to or interference (intentionally or unintentionally) with our company’s rights or should you be adversely affecting other users and causing harm by your activities.
