These files contain e.g. the web browser & version, used operating system, referrer URL (previously visited website), IP-address of the client computer, time/date as well as the data request of the client (file name & URL). These files are only collected for the purpose of statistical evaluation. We never sell these files to 3rd parties, be it commercial or non-commercial.
