Do websites keep your IP? However, websites can’t trace that unique IP address to your physical home or business address. Instead, websites can tie your IP address to your internet service provider, city, region, and even possibly your ZIP code. This is why you see ads for local businesses in your area online, for example.
Does Google delete IP addresses? How long do you keep data in your search logs? Eighteen months. At that point we permanently delete the last two digits from the IP address and randomly assign a new cookie number. This breaks the link between the search query and the browser it was entered from.
Do servers store IP addresses? The web server that hosts your website collects IP addresses of the website users. This operation is required in order to communicate with your users’ web browsers. Without access to IP data, your web server will not be able to load your website into a user’s web browser.
