IP Geolocation Services often only tell you where they believe an IP Address may currently be located, and not which country actually owns it!
What's worse, there is no way to tell who historically owned that IP Address at the time you stored your data!
All of your assumptions about your data are based off of their current dataset!
Knowing WHEN and WHERE ownership of an IP Address was held, will help you identify what data laws apply.
Search our API with any IP Address and Timestamp to find which country owned that IP Address!
