When browsing the internet, you leave an electronic foot print behind that reveals where you have been. This happens when your browser sends information to a server, e.g.” I would like to see the website of www.ipc.dk”. Most browsers leave behind traces of product data and version number, e.g. Microsoft Internet Explorer version 7.0; the server can then return the requested page in such a way that it is correctly shown in your browser. While requiring access to www.ipc.dk your browser simultaneously sends other information to our server such as your IP-address; subsequently our server knows where to send the requested page.
Depending on the OS and browser that you use, your browser will also send the username used when you logged on to your computer.
