IP addresses are numeric codes assigned to devices connected to the internet. They can be thought of as analogous to telephone numbers, identifying different points on the internet, between which communication can occur. Bangla Journal uses the IP addresses of institutions as a basis for identifying institutional subscribers and may provide them with access to its archives. Institutional users also sometimes require statistics about the usage of their subscription accounts. In order to supply these services, Bangla Journal records the IP addresses of requests for the banglajournal.org site. This information is only used internally to Bangla Journal, and only for these purposes.
