Can we pass IP addresses to Google Analytics in Dimension variables?

I wanted to check if we could pass a website visitors IP address to Google Analytics as a dimension variable. If yes, will this violate the GA Terms of Service?

My understanding is that sending a raw IP would violate the terms. You can filter out IPs from a view of course.

 

You possibly use server logs to view IP addresses accessing your site but this may not help you much.
