What data do we collect?

This service records and retains a record of http requests as logged by our webserver. These records include the originating IP-address, a timestamp, the requested URL, the user-agent string, and the address of the previous web page from which a link to our service was followed. We have modified the logging-procedure of our webserver with the tool AnonIP ( such that the last 12 bits and the last 84 bits of IPv4 and IPv6 addresses, respectively, are masked in the logs and cannot be used to identify individual users or clients. These data are stored on a secured server within the Eawag network.
