SAGMILLING.COM collects only one type of information from anonymous people visiting the web site:
the IP address of the originating request. Any computer that exists on the internet will have a unique
IP address that will look something like this: 188.8.131.52. These addresses can often be resolved to
backward to your internet service provider using a standard "host" or "whois" lookup to an name something
like this: 00-a0-0c-12-b2-94.bconnected.net [184.108.40.206].
Why do we collect such arcane information? The first reason is to protect ourselves from hacker attacks.
By being able to determine the ISP who hosts someone committing an attack, we are able to contact the
ISP and take appropriate steps to ensure the hacker stops. A second reason is to help us identify who our
audience is. Most host names give a clue whether they are a personal or a business account, and if they are
personal, then what speed is the person running (residential broadband or higher speed office networks).
Knowing the ratio of people who have high speed internet access allows us to justify putting more complex
information on the web site. If a large proportion of visitors are using dial-up access in Africa, for
example, then we need to keep our file sizes small.
