I thought "kennen" was for knowing people, and "weten" was for knowing information. Since an address is a piece of information and not a person, .... why is ken the preferred verb?

Could it be the difference between "I am familiar with her address" (kennen) and "I have knowledge of her address" (weten)?

Would "Ik weet haar adres" also be correct?

Is both ken and weet okay here? (I am not sure if I have learned ken in Duolingo before now actually, I'm strengthening the places skill...)
