Standard Apache logs are kept, recording certain details of every HTTP[S] interaction. These logs are deleted after 28 days. Beyond that point only anonymous statistical data is kept for reporting purposes.
The UCS reserves the right to keep log files if an investigation is under way for the purposes of assisting with the investigation.
Details stored in the standard Apache log files:
- Internet address of connecting client
- Authenticated user id
- Time stamp
- Request made
- Server's response code and number of bytes returned
- The "user agent" string identifying the make of client
- Users who visit a Falcon site may receive the Google Analytics cookies if the site administrator has enabled them (whether or not they authenticate).
- Users who authenticate will receive cookies from the Raven/Shibboleth authentication system.
