Virtually every web server on the internet writes server log files. It helps to monitor performance, check errors, detect abuse, collect statistics etc. Surfer Map is no exception, we need these standard tools to run our site. The legal basis for this processing is our legitimate interest. Information in the logs usually include: time of access, IP address, address of the requested page, browser type and version, used operating system, referrer URL (last visited website). All Surfer Map server logs are only used internally, they are never shared with anyone outside Surfer Map. Logs are written continuously and rotated automatically (deleted after certain time) when they are not needed anymore.
