A protocol file is created with every page view in which access data, the server log, is stored. In this process, your IP address (identification of your computer is possible), the product information of the used browser, the remote host (name and IP address of the computer which requests the site), time, status, the amount of data transferred, as well as the name of the site from which you came to the requested site (referrer) will be recorded. For this purpose, goober applies the standard combined log file format from the apache web server and uses the protocol data anonymized, this means without reference or any other hints that would lead to your person. This data will only be used for statistical evaluation (e.g. to evaluate the times of the day with the most requests) and to analyse errors (e.g. inaccurate links).
If there is any suspicion that somebody is using goober platforms in an illegal or antinomian way or contrary to contract, goober reserves the right to check the log files for the last known IP address of these goober members later.
