An access log is required for error analysis and security analysis. The log file is not accessible to third parties.

The access log files are not evaluated for any other purpose than troubleshooting or security analysis. Information that enables an IP address to be assigned to a person is not accessible to me, so this data does not represent any personal data for me.

Unless otherwise officially ordered, access logs that are older than 3 days are automatically deleted.
