  1. Hello,

    Logging *all* data that you output and receive using the internet connection
    will consume a huge amount of disk space if you multiply by the number of
    subscribers. Most probably they only log the connections you make. E.g. if
    you go to google.com/search, it logs that you connected to google.com/search
    but not what you sent/received to google.com/search.

    But what you search is logged also as the search terms form part of the URL
    when you search on google. Credit card details are sent as POST data and
    most likely not logged.

    2c.
