The IP address you view the page from is sent everytime you look at a webpage, etc. Since you guys visit my server, I can see every town you come from. If I examine the packets more closely, I can see every switch your data packets come from - this lets me track the internet route the packet took and narrow down exact local and in some cases get within a thousand feet of where you were using the internet.
And you don't have to be a computer geek to get this information. There are websites where you can just give the iP address to the site and get all the pertanent data back.
Just be cautious how much you trust people, out there.
