Is it possible to use the user's IP address on the server to identify the location?

Create weather widget for Wordpress themes sold on themeforest.
Get GEODATA(location of the ISP server) client IP service via IPAPI.
Will there be any problems with IP, which generally policy says about this?

You can use the choice of the city showing the mini-map and please click in the approximate place where the user is. After clicking, print this section of the city with the map data - weather.
This is the best option.
