Web Log Retention

I hang out in some IRC channels to share questions and generally admire how smart I am. Sometimes parts of the discussion are worth sharing.

mnex: do access_log should be considered as confidential information ?
crunge: mnex: confidential, yes
crunge: mnex: at the very least it’s proprietary business information that helps in the analysis of the effectiveness of one’s website and marketing
crunge: mnex: business aside, your visitors probably don’t want everyone to know what they’ve been looking at.
crunge: mnex: also, sometimes URLs contain sensitive information like search terms, user names, addresses, phone numbers, etc
