Whenever you view a web page they know your IP address. This is how the internet works. If they didn't have your IP address they wouldn't be able to send you the information so you could view their page. So it's nothing to worry about.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

—George Bernard Shaw
