VPNM may maintain log files of all access to its Services and may monitor network traffic for the purposes of Services management. This information is used to help diagnose problems with the Services and to carry out other administrative tasks. Log analysis tools are also used to create statistics that help measure the performance of the Services including, without limitation, usability successes, issues and failures.

a. Hostname: the hostname and/or IP address of the computer requesting access to the Services.

d. System date: the date and time on which you accessed the Services.
e. Full request: the exact search request you made.
f. Status: the status code the server returned, e.g., fulfilled request, file not found.
