Why do I have to transfer the IP address with the search queries?

The transfer of the IP address to Findologic and the subsequent bot detection is carried out as a service and added value for our customers, so that no unnecessary costs arise from the requests of the bots. 

However, it is of course up to our customers to transmit a syntactically valid IP address such as instead. In this case, the bot detection must be carried out on the customer's side, as Findologic then has no possibility to determine the origin of the request.
