I was recently on this car website; they were saying that they have to record my IP adress for "security reasons". It was my first time coming across such a site, is this normal practise or has my security been compromised.

Your IP address is logged by all sorts of sites - including this one I believe.

Some 'restricted' sites use your IP address to validate you as an accredited user.

There is nothing to worry about.
