Your IP Address

BabyNames.com records user IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our site and identify malicious visitors on the message boards. IP addresses remain private, and are not displayed or posted on the site to any other user.

We take great care in making sure our users are not bombarded with email, and we will never sell or share your personal information with any other company. When you receive a special offer from one of our advertisers, it will come from our server, as we send them out on the advertiser's behalf.
