We log them. We don't sell or share them (although we likely would if required by law enforcement).

I'm pretty sure that Google Analytics, which we use for statistics and trend tracking, uses them, but off of the top of my head I am not sure whether that service logs the IPs or merely uses them to do geolocation to discover the country/locale of origin for users and then discards the actual IP.

E-mails are viewable by staff members via the Admin CP but otherwise are not exposed. We do not sell or otherwise give away such information, short of being legally required to turn them over.
