Restrictions on IP Geolocation

MaxMind customers are not allowed to use IP geolocation data from our products or services to attempt to identify a specific household, individual, or street address, nor are they allowed to encourage others to do so.

This restriction is a part of our license agreements because IP geolocation cannot reliably be used to identify households, individuals, or street addresses. Attempting to use MaxMind’s IP geolocation data for this purpose would result in misidentification, which would be counterproductive for our customers.
