IANAL, so: Are there any exceptions in EU's GDPR that allow short-stored logs of user-identifiable information? That would seem useful, as *some* logging is useful when detecting and reporting fraudalent activities and for detecting spam. Logs are rotated and are sometimes useful when a data breach happens.

I've also seen some examples of ISPs having to store info, that would be classified as user data, for 6 months for detecting illegal activities. See [1].

Again, IANAL, but [0] describes some allowances regarding log data. I agree with adding the privacy option, but is that really a must when dealing with EU customers?

Regards!
