    Hi,
    I wonder if any of you has considered the legal issues related to keeping the
    Apache web logs for awstat treatment.
    We use to keep the logs for quite long period (3 years) and then re-run
    statistics as necessary to get year-by-year comparison.
    However, my manager is worried by the recent case between the German
    government and Google Analytics and suggested we might keep the logs no more
    than 7 days.

    Any experience with this?
    Thanks
