Generic server logs
First, whenever you visit our site as a registered user or anonymously, our server will log and save certain information about your session, including your IP address, browser and operating system, as well as date and time of your visit. Due to the nature of the HTTP protocol, this information can also contain the link that you followed to get to our site, and possibly the search query that you used to find us. This can also help us identify problems with non-existing pages or other browsing issues.
While the IP addresses are regarded as personal information, they serve the sole purpose of protecting our site from possible breaches of security or attacks, or assistance in case of login problems. This data is never further processed, analyzed, shared or used for any other purposes than stated here.

For example, if you sign in into a website, a cookie will be created indicating that you are currently logged in under a certain username.

Yes, but we only create cookies essential for the operation of our site.
