For that matter, surely this data won't exist anyway before 2013 or so?
I'm not sure how long we retain IP data for
logged-in users, but I'd be
a bit startled if it was five years.
EventLogging can contain almost anything I think. Is there any purging? I
don't think so. Is it aggregate and anonymised? No longer. <

Sorry but this is not correct:
IP addresses are anonymized in Event Logging and they always have been so.
We calculate a HMAC with a rotating salt that changes either every 90 days
or with a service restart.
Event Logging data has never been aggregated, it is a system to log
discrete events. There had not been any changes on this regard as of late.
What Nuria said is correct, however, we do store some data, such as User
Agents currently. This is not our intention for the long term, we are in
the middle of putting in place a sanitization strategy to get rid of any
PII after 90 days. This discussion might make more sense in another thread
though, kindly please do not hijack Sajjad's thread :)
