Browser Level Information

IP address: Every computer connected to the Internet has
a numeric address called an IP address. This may or may
not correspond uniquely to a particular computer. In some cases, IP addresses
can be resolved to domain
names, which may indicate a site visitor's Internet service provider, employer,
university, etc. As part of its database analysis provial.com resolves
IP addresses to domain names.
Browser type: A user's browser is a software program running on a
computer that allows users to access documents on the World Wide Web. Browsers

server and interpret the coding into what the user sees as Web pages. Netscape
Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer are examples of Web browsers. Browser

Referrer: The referrer is the URL of the Internet resource or page that causes
a browser to request a page or image from provial.com servers.
