However, this may not always be the case. In the event of a critical system error or an attack on our services, such as a DDoS, it may be necessary to temporarily enable logs to diagnose and remedy the issue. In scenarios such as these, logs will be purged as soon as the issue is dealt with. If you are found to be engaging in activities that harm our services, such as spamming, DDoS or brute-force attacks, your IP address may be stored permanently to protect us, our services and other users of our services.
