Opera is not able to link usage related data in Opera proxy servers to individual persons. Opera proxy servers log in addition to the web addresses (not content of the web pages), IP-addresses, Operating system, any campaign reference for the Software and a randomly generated identifier for the Software. Opera stores and processes usage related log data to provide, debug, maintain, and optimize the service. Opera server logs are kept for up to six months. Usage-related log data is also used to generate aggregated and anonymized statistics for Opera’s own use and for reporting usage to Opera’s customers.
