Management's Statement on the Effectiveness of Internal Control

Neustar IP Intelligence provides Internet Protocol geolocation services which enable the real-time geographic location of web site visitors to be determined. Neustar's IP geolocation service includes the follow:

  • GeoPoint: Neustar's database of IP address and the network characteristic data for each. Such information includes the country, state, city, connection type, proxy information, and other characteristics important to the description of an IP address.
  • GeoDirectory Server: Neustar's system by which the GeoPoint data is delivered to their clients. This system automatically downloads data updates as they become available from Neustar and also uploads data used to characterize web traffic to assist Neustar in prioritizing research efforts. The acquisition of this information is a key part of Neustar's Closed-Loop process.
