Cloudflare uses a "__cfduid" cookie for security; GetIPIntel does not use any cookies. GetIPIntel does provide GeoIP data in beta, which is opt-in when making API requests.

All logs stored requires privileged access to the system. If files are moved, a secure protocol is used during transmission. Reasonable steps are taken to protect data from unauthorized access.

Custom subdomains or web interface logs:

2) the time stamp of that request
3) the response code of that request
4) and the contact information that was provided during the setup of your custom subdomain or any additional information you provided to use as contact information

In respect to the web interface, exclude (1) and (4) as they are not relevant.
For every API request, the system does not store the IP that was looked up or the email address you used in the contact field in the server logs.
The information stored is required for accounting purposes and debugging in case of issues. It expires in 3 months. Again, the web server log do not store the IP that was looked up or the email address you used in the contact field for the API requests.

At this stage, there's no indication of who looked up a particular IP, why the IP was looked up, etc. After 3 day, there's no indication that a particular IP was looked up.

If you abuse the API, the abusing IP(s) and other information will be stored for an extended period of time to stop abuse on our systems. The information can be removed if and only if the abuse stops.
