Privacy policy - log location and rotation in docker


Anyone got any knowledge of where logs are kept in the docker setup(s), and what their rotation and retention are?

I’m in the process of writing my privacy policy, after reading this blog post:

My intent is to keep no logs, beyond a couple of days of operation logs for the usual defensive reasons (identifying bad actors), using this suggested wording …

… which essentially describes what the web server logs.

But I need to make sure that I know where all logs are located, including ones I may potentially not know about (like database), and that they are all rotated and deleted on a regular basis.
