    hi.

    just a quick question. if you gave someone an email address to use for a dating sign up, and they filled it in on their pc/laptop and completed the sign up (so their ip would show for sign up), if i clicked the activation link to activate the account myself, would this track my ip also for the activation, or do they just take the sign up ip?

    cheers :p

    I would of thought it would track your IP to to prevent anything unethical happening.

    If that was the case, then it would make filling in your own offers for money a lot easier; for that reason alone should give you enough reassurance that they're tracking all IP addresses at any point of interaction - simply to eliminate potential bogus/fraud/fake offers being created.

    Why would you want to active it yourself anyway? I'm going to assume it's blackhat lol !

    :D

    You don't really want to complete your own CPA offers, its generally a bad idea and yea they can see your IP.

    However if you do just one it will probably never be looked at, but again its not really worth it either.
