We collect your IP address to help diagnose problems with our Server, and to administer our Sites. The Server may also collect the user's age and their region to establish that the user is of a legal drinking age in the jurisdiction where they are viewing our Sites. This information is used to measure the number of visitors to the different sections of the Sites, to determine whether users are of legal drinking age, and to improve the user experience on our Sites.
