"they" know your location with a precision of meters as long as they can get your IP. The IP is an unique number each computer needs to access the Internet. Every time you connect to the internet, your Internet provider assigns this kind of number (called IP) to your computer. The pool of available IP number is limited in each country, so you can tell the country where the number comes from. As you would know that if I call you and my number starts with +44 - then I am located in the UK.

And they can probably in many cases just get into you PC and find out exsactly who you are.
Does anyone know that when you buy a computer it has its own ID that is then matched with the owner?
