In an ideal world, we wouldn't keep sensitive user data in the BridgeDB logs. Maybe we can come up with an idea on how to keep the data of statistical value and still not keep anything sensitive.

For instance, GetTor logs hashed email addresses of users. Maybe this is something we could do for BridgeDB, too.

Sounds good. When you do this, maybe consider hashing the normalized version of the email address, not the original email address.

BridgeDB (as deployed) doesn't log IPs. Hashes of email addresses are stored long enough (3 hours or so) to implement email rate limiting. Was this ticket about something else, or can it be closed?
