The Weather Channel as a Weather Services Provider
Just like people cannot send letters to each other without postal addresses, devices on the internet cannot communicate without IP addresses. Because of this, the other company’s website or application uses an IP address so that we can provide weather information to your device. The other company may communicate with The Weather Channel using an IP address assigned to your device at the time or an IP address for their internal systems. Either way, The Weather Channel will use the IP address solely for the purpose of delivering weather information to you.
