Similar to geo-snippets and marketplace we are going to use geolocation to serve content per location for FFOS website. For this first round (the teaser page) we'll be doing the geolocation client-side. This will involve the page including a script tag to "http://geo.mozilla.org/country.js" which will use the connecting client's IP address to return a country code. We'll then use that country code to show/hide elements on the screen based on the current offers or lack thereof in the user's country.

Hi Mike, Are we planning to use the info for anything else? For example, with Snippets, we said "Aside from providing you with the snippets service, we use the information from these requests to estimate what fraction of Firefox users click on each snippet (broken down into general categories like Firefox version and geographic area)." Would we want to estimate the fraction of website users who respond to each offer?

The first use-case is Firefox OS content on www.mozilla.org, but I assume in the future we may have another use for it. It is hard to say the estimated traffic to this section of the website has it has never existed and it depends on how much interest there is in Firefox OS.
+1 to not having to do anything. This is not the Firefox product and it is probably covered in the broader language as Jishnu mentioned.
