you're right. actually, you musn't store server logs with clear IP addresses
indefinitely, and they are only endured as long as they are a technical
neccessity in the first place (to prevent harm, solve problems etc.). it is
not allowed to store or analyse IP addresses out of curiosity -- at least not
without approval. most hosters/providers here have implemented pseudonymous
logs (the key to retrieve the real IP is stored elsewhere and it's
automatically deleted after a certain time, i'd have to research a little to
find out how many days exactly).
you can read the directive here (but it's all german...):
here's some general information in english:
