Tracking of corporate IP addresses

While this does not use Cookies, we do use a service designed to highlight potential business-to-business sales/marketing opportunities by tracking the static IP addresses of visitors to the web site and linking this to publically available information. Where available our service provider will connect the IP address to the organisation that is registered as owning this address, and we may use this information for sales and marketing purposes. This extends to collecting the organisation name, location, business contact details and on occasion employee numbers, nature of business and turnover available. This information is only collected if the static IP address is registered to an organisation, thus residing in the public domain.
