What is a Log file?
A log file is a text file which registers what happens on a website and with a web server. The sort of information registered in a log file can include which pages are shown, which images are called up, the manner in which a website has been found, what errors have been reported etc. In short, a log file registers the communication which has taken place between your computer and our website. The web page is the end result of this communication.

If we do use the information gathered it is always bundled in an anonymous manner.
