Your IP address, device information, browser type, settings, and information about your usage of the Services (such as the date/time stamps associated with your usage, pages, and files viewed, searches, and other actions you take like which features you use) may all be included in this log data, depending on how you interact with us. It may also include information about your device events information, such as system activity, error reports (sometimes called “crash dumps”), and hardware settings.
